We will be in London for 3 days and I'm a little confused about the various train ticket options. Our two kids are under 7, so we'd only be purchasing for 2 adults.
Based on my search on …tfl.gov.uk/user/XSLT_TRIP_REQUEST2… I can take the train from Heathrow to Sloan Square to get to our rented apartment, with a change betw Piccadilly and District lines. What 'tickets' should I purchase to make this happen and where can I do so?
1) From what I've read, one option is to load up an Oystercard and from there, if need be, use this to buy a Travelcard? Can these be purchased at Heathrow or any station? And is it true I need a photo to buy a Travelcard?
2) With the kids, we will pbly be using the Tube a fair amount. Is there an option to buy unlimited travel? Would this be worthwhile considering our primary trips would be from Sloane Station to the Tower of London area, Parliment area and Hyde Park area for our 3 days?
Finally, we would like to take advantage of the 2-1 Tower of London tickets. Which of the trip tickets above do we hang on to to allow us to do this? I attempted to download the 2-1 offer off the http://www.daysoutguide.co.uk/ but it kept throwing in unexpected error :(
Sorry for the slew of questions. Thanks in advance!!
