Here’a small list of the most common first-time London visitor questions.
Get yourself an Oyster Card.
The easiest way of travelling around. Order it in advance or get it on arrival. Top it up, go!
Valid on all tubes, busses, inner London trains and the DLR. And you can add the kids for free!
Book the tickets EARLY on the official website and take the train / tube up to Watford Junction.
On arrival at the station there’s shuttle bus taking you to the studios. It’s dead easy and saves you a ton!
It takes place outside Buckingham Palace from 10.45am and lasts around 45 minutes, with the actual handover taking place at 11am.
Be there early, at least 45min before it starts, as even in low season there are huge crowds!
Pro, it saves you a lot of money if you want to visit a lot of the major attractions.
Con, seeing a lot of the major sites takes a lot of time and there are loads of free things to do.
It can be overwhelming, we know. And it all depends on your budget and expectation. We can help, just ask!
Yes, most museums are free to enter, but you have to pay for some exhibitions.
Stonehenge, Bath and Oxford are the most popular ones.
And while you can reach Bath and Oxford easily by train, similar Windsor, you’d have to book yourself on one of coach operators or hire a car if you want to see Stonehenge.
Yes, it is by all means!
This cover a lot of the most common first-time London visitor questions!
