    Get and use a pay as you go oyster card as the maximum daily spend is capped to around £5 and you can use it for everything :) over 7 years ago

    I agree - the oyster cards are really easy and the tube is a very fast way to get around London.

    Many tube stops are good locations to sight-see and explore from - such as Picadilly (Theatres), London Bridge (the Thames and Tower bridge), Oxford Circus (Shopping) and Westminster.

    You can also buy a day pass on the red double-decker tour buses which allow you to hop on and off throughout the day. over 7 years ago

    The Oyster also works on regular London red buses (the vast majority of which are double-deckers in the city), and the same upper daily limits applies across both tube and bus. The tourist buses are pricier, and while oriented towards popular destinations, it's not hard to get around using the normal ones. over 7 years ago

    Not to mention the 2 for 1 specials to many attractions with the oyster card. over 7 years ago

    I would say the best way is on one of the big red buses. You can jump on and off when ever you like. You will get to se many of the famous sites around London from the buses, You will stop at London Bridge, Big Ben, Westminster, Oxford Street, Picadilly and much much more.

    Otherwise the tubes are easily accessible, but of course you are underground and don't get to see much apart from the odd bit of day light. over 7 years ago

    agreed with all the above

    however I'd advise buying a weekly ticket - they are 25 quid for zones 1 and 2 and then you can get on and off as much as you like, plus you can use it on busses PLUS when you get the weekly ticket it works on most of the overland trains as well...which means youc an get just about anywhere! over 7 years ago

    I'd agree with Calvert, rather than PAYG get either a daily Travel Card or if you're there for a week get the weekly, it works out much cheaper than paying for each individual journey even on the reduced pre-paid oyster prices. over 7 years ago

    You might also want to check out the Thames River cruise tour as well, you don't get to see Buckingham Palace but you do see a lot of the main attractions from a different angle. over 7 years ago
