Your Guide To Getting Around London

Visiting a new place is always exciting. There is a whole new world to discover! The only downside to travelling? Trying to navigate an unfamiliar area. You might know the bus routes and subway stops for your city off by heart. However, a new city means a totally new set of rules and regulations. Don’t let that get you down. It is possible to reach every must visit spot on your list…. without getting lost! All you need is a little guidance. Well here it is. This is your guide to get around London with ease.

 

Take a Limousine From The Airport. The airplane has just touched down in London, England. You are beyond excited. It’s easy to figure out why. There is so much for you to see and do over the course of your vacation. The only snag? Getting from the airport to your hotel. This can be a stressful experience. Cabs can cost an awful lot – especially if your accommodations are a little further away. You simply want to reach your destination with as little hassle as possible. One option is to take a limousine from the airport. Not only will this make you feel like a million bucks (a little luxury is the perfect way to kick-start your vacation) but it will get you where you want to go quickly and easily. Blacklane is one limousine option to consider. They offer all-inclusive rates and complimentary wait times. See? Getting around doesn’t have to be stressful.

Make The Most Of The Tube System. The London Underground (also known as the Tube) is one of the easiest ways to get around the city during your trip. There are all day passes available and the routes are extensive. It doesn’t matter if you are heading to the Sherlock Holmes Museum, Buckingham Palace, or the SSE Arena Wembley. The Tube can get you there. Maps are located throughout the underground and updates are posted regularly. Still feeling a little nervous? Don’t worry. The locals are very friendly and helpful. When in doubt, be sure to ask someone for guidance. They will point you in the right direction. Another option is the iconic Double Decker bus. If you use an Oyster card it will work on the underground, buses, and the DLR.

 

Grab a Taxi Cab Late If You Are Coming Back Late. Did you check out a fantastic West End show? What an amazing evening! The only thing you have left to worry about is making your way back to the hotel. The Tube is certainly still an option. However if you feel a little leery about taking the underground late at night? Grab a taxi instead. These can be found all around the city. (Especially in the West End after a show ends. So you will not have to wait very long to find one.) Cab drivers are typically friendly and known the city inside and out. You will get back to your hotel in no time. Just be prepared to pay a little more than your Tube fare.
