London is a relatively compact capital city for tourists, since despite its sprawling surroundings the majority of the main attractions are fairly central. This is great news if you don’t have long to get between places and you want to see as much as possible during your visit, but you’re still likely to find yourself at the opposite end of the city to where you’d like to be a couple of times.
That’s why there are so many different ways to travel across London, and frequent visitors or local commuters might argue that various options are the best, or the quickest, or the best value for money. Here is a summary of a few options you have, whatever reason you have for visiting London.
Let’s start with an often-overlooked option for getting around, since you might be choosing this from the moment you arrive. If you’re coming direct to the centre of the city from a major London airport , an airport transfer minicab to or from Luton, Stansted or Gatwick might be a great option for you. This means you can be taken directly from door to door without the hassle of public transport, ideal for when you first arrive at your hotel and when you’re in a hurry to catch your flight home.
