Travel within London

London has good network of underground, bus and train services. There are different discounts available for the travel. If you’re attending MINDELL’S pre conference seminar or spending two days visiting London, the most useful item for your travels within London besides a good London map and guide-book is the:

oysterOyster Card
The Oyster Card is a ‘PAY AS YOU GO’ card. You can buy it online before you leave home or better, you can buy it at the first subway / tube station in London or in a newspaper stand that advertises for it without having to fill out a longish form. Ask for an OYSTER CARD for minimum 10 GBP – plus 3 pounds for the card, and you will have enough for traveling around in London during your stay. Make sure to follow the guidelines – show it to the computer both at the beginning of your travel and when you exit (except on busses and boats).

If you need to take the train, or want to walk through London, make sure to visit the LONDON TRANSPORT website that has a route planner and gives you information about various ways of reaching your destination
