Journey Planner

Oyster Cards: For your stay in London it may be worthwhile buying a pre-loaded “pay-as-you-go” Oyster card to which you would add credit as needed. You can buy an Oyster card at most tube or train stations. This can be returned at any tube station before you leave and the deposit plus any balance remaining on the card will be refunded to you. Remember to “tap in” (at the start of your journey) and to “tap out” (at the end of your journey) at the Oyster card readers, otherwise you will be charged extra.
