Travel Tips


Londoners moan about the Tube a lot. It is easy to forget that this is one of the most extensive, most frequent urban rail systems in the world, and easy to forget how convenient it is;

For getting from A to B across town, there is no faster way (well, maybe motorbike or cycling is quicker, but that is not reasonable for visitors or very safe!). BUT by using the Tube too much you can miss an awful lot. One of the best things about London is the different flavour of the neighbourhoods and how quickly you can move between areas of very different types - the City and Spitalfields, for example; or Bloomsbury, Mayfair and Soho. If you do all your travelling underground, you miss all that. OK, so London is a very big place, but there are a lot of major attractions you can easily walk between and it will open your eyes.  Do not be tempted to get of at Covent Garden station to visit Covent Garden!  Nearly all the stations within two stops from it are only a ten minute walk away.  Last but not least if you go to visit Camden Town jump off at Chalk Farm, not Camden Town station, this way you avoid the sardines.
