Buy an Oyster Card

When you buy an Oyster card, you can rest assured knowing that you’re going to get the cheapest travel rates in London. You wouldn’t always be able to do this without one, so make sure you plan in advance to get the best rate and save money. You can get the tube, train, and other modes of transport and save money as you go. Just top it up and pay away. The money doesn’t expire either!

Get Your Pass in Advance


If you want to experience everything London has to offer, you can get your pass in advance to save money. By buying your tickets in bulk, you’ll save a lot of money when compared to buying separately. Once you have your guest pass, you’ll be able to enjoy all of your desired activities at a pace that suits you.  


See a Live Show


Seeing a live show is what travelling to London is all about. You can see shows like the Lion King and Shrek, but it isn’t just for kids. Adults absolutely love seeing shows like this at the theatre, so make sure you include it in your itinerary.


Keep Your Money Safe


London is a big city and mostly safe, but it doesn’t hurt to take extra safety precautions when making your way around. Keep your money safely zipped away, and even consider having a second ‘fake’ wallet just in case. You should be fine, but you want to be sure.

Create an Itinerary


Create an itinerary before you go to London so you can stay focused and enjoy all of the things you want to do. As there’s so much to do there, creating a schedule to manage your time will help. I would just recommend that you also leave yourself some spare time, as you may want to explore on your own for a while, with no plans. You can find so much in London by just making your way around on foot. You can make a great itinerary with the help of a good London Guide.


Wear Appropriate Clothing


You need to make sure you’re comfortable as you explore, so wear appropriate clothing. I don’t recommend wearing heels, and you should always wear layers. This way you can add bits and take them away as you see fit. The weather can be extremely temperamental.


Soak Up the Atmosphere


Sometimes, it’s nice to simply head to London and soak up the atmosphere. You can do this by relaxing in one of the pretty parks or taking a seat by a fountain in Trafalgar Square. People watching is a good shout!

Hopefully, these tips help you to make the most of your trip to London and you have a fantastic time. Tips of your own? Leave them below! See you next time.
