Transport in London
London’s public transport system is one of the world’s best, allowing millions of local people and tourists to travel efficiently across this vast city every day, providing access to the wonderful array of London attractions.
There are three primary methods of London transport: the London Underground (known as ‘the tube’), London’s bus services and the trains.
Journeys across London can be planned using the transport for London website: www.tfl.gov.uk
London’s tube, bus and train services are spit into six zones. A large proportion of the main London tourist attractions are located within zones one and two. Tourists can purchase a pass each day (known as a Travelcard) that provides visitors with unlimited tube, bus and train access. You can select which of the six zones your Travelcard covers. The most expensive Travelcard covers zones one through to six; the cheapest Travelcard covers just zone one.
Those London tourists with an interest in the city’s transport history can visit the London Transport Museum in Covent Garden.
