Getting Around:

Travelling around London is relatively easy and there is many forms of transportation you can take. You can choose between walking, cycling, the London Underground, Black Cabs, Red Buses, or a Ferry.

If you plan to take public transport I would highly recommend purchasing an ostercard as it is cheaper, however if you have a contactless card that is also a very convinient way to use these services.

Providing it isnt raining cats and dogs outside walking around london or using the santander bicycles is the best way to explore. There are many twists and turns you would otherwise look past had you been moving at a fast pace. 

Take the time to travel down one of these paths and just see what you will stumble across!
