Travelling Tips for London City Breaks

London London is a large and vibrant city that is filled with activities and attractions which offers something for everyone. Whether you’re looking forward to a long London city break or a short day trip, you will find loads of things to do in London. The main challenge will be getting around in the city. Keeping that in mind, the following are some tips that would come in handy to the traveler.

Get an Oyster Card

As a tourist you can opt for an Oyster Card while on city breaks, which will cost you just around £5, and is partially refundable. This will allow you to access all the nearby forms of transportation which include the buses, tubes, rail, trams, DLR and even the gondola service, which makes travelling so much easier. It also gets you the most bang for your buck since it offers significant savings while you take the tour of the city.

Hop On, Hop Off Tours

While there are bus companies which offer some great hop-on-hop-off London tour options, Golden Tours offer similar service which includes a walking tour along with a river cruise for just under £29. All hop-on-hop-off tickets are valid for up to 24 hours, which allows tourists to take their time at exploring all that the beautiful city of London has to offer.

Boris Bike Scheme

If you’d rather leg it, then the city’s Boris bike scheme allows you to do just that. Reserve public transport for longer journeys and use the Boris bike scheme to see more sights and sounds of London, and get some exercise while you’re at it.

With so much to do in London, a bit of planning can go a long way at making sure you squeeze the most out of your city breaks to London.
