Maps & Transport
For transport purposes, London is divided into six concentric zones, with fares calculated depending in which zones you travel: the majority of the city’s sights, restaurants, pubs and parks lie in Zone 1, the central zone. Transport for London (TfL) provides excellent free maps and details of bus and tube service: please visit www.tfl.gov.uk.
Oyster Cards is a prepaid card which provides the most convenient and easiest way to go, as one card will take care of all transportation on buses, tubes and DLR (Docklands Light Railway). For a refundable fee of £3 you take the card and then you top-up the value at any tube or train station according to your travel needs. Using Oyster will always be 50p cheaper than the equivalent Day Travelcard.
If you plan to spend few days touring the town, you can buy a 3-Day Travelcard. It’s available for £16.40 (zone 1-2) or £36.60 (zone 1-6).
The Underground, or the “tube” as it is known to Londoners, is normally the quickest and easiest way of getting round London while double decker are a fun way to see London.
