distances? please help!

Hello i am coming to london quite soon,but i know very little about distances between zones and how to get form one zone to another and is it more reasonable to go with a bus or tube(if i am not the richest one)

actually i want to know how long it takes with a bus to get from Wood Green(zone 3) to Hammersmith, which is very far from wood green and in zone 2 on the other side!

and is it sensible to go to work from so long distances?

thanks in advance!

Wood Green to Hammersmith would probably take 45 minutes by tube.

It would not be an unusual commute for London - at least it is all on one line so you always get a seat going home!

Tube (as RE says) is indeed the only practical way to travel between the two places. According to the Transport for London website, the bus journey (Number 29 then 10 changing at Tottenham Court Road) would take I hour and 50 minutes compared with around 40 minutes on The Piccadilly Line with no changes.

Tube all the way - buses (although suitable for short hops and late at night when there's less traffic) take for ever to get anywhere in daytime.

Having said this, if you're really tight for money, you may want to consider taking a bus as a bus pass will be cheaper than a tube pass, but you have to allow extra time for commuting.

You will need a zone 1-3 pass, as although you start in Zone 3 and finish in Zone 2 you pass through Zone 1.

To avoid the long tube journey and the associated expense, why not look for somewhere to stay a bit nearer your work in Hammersmith?
