MOVING IN LONDON
Getting around in London is simple. Thanks to its subway (Tube), London is divided into 1-9 areas, and the metro connects in a capillary way all the different areas of the city; we have no doubt that the metro is the best means of transport. The immense London Underground network (consisting of 14 lines) is legendary, for info you can visit the official website and you can take a look at the Map (in the image above).
As we mentioned earlier, the areas of London are different, but there is, however, a central area of London that has a definition and a proper statute: the City of London. Often simply called City, it is the largest financial area in Europe. The City possesses complete political and administrative autonomy.
From Friday 19 Agosto 2016, in fact, the London Night Tube was officially inaugurated. Every Friday and Saturday; two metro lines will remain open all night long. Central and Victoria officially inaugurate the night service and will remain open throughout the night; between the 00.30 and the 5.30; there will be six trains per hour passing through London Central.
Visitor Oyster Card
It is an electronic ticket whose credit, loaded in advance, allows you to travel on most of London's public transport.
The Oyster card works in the same way as the Visitor Oyster card, but does not include any discount or offer for tourists and visitors. The price of the Oyster is £ 5 (refundable at the end of the stay), to which must be added credit for travel on public transport in London.
The Travel Card
Kanoa recommends the 1-4 Zones (these areas are available only Anytime Day Travelcard).
Anytime Day Travelcards are valid for any time during the day and any day of the week for any trip up to 04.30 of the following day. There are different types of cards:
- The 1 Day Travelcard is a daily paper pass that allows you to travel as much as you want and without frequency limits within a day. This day ticket can be used on the bus, underground (called Tube), DLR, tram, and on the MBNA River Thames Clippers, on the Overground and on most of the train lines that travel within London.
- London's weekly public transport pass is called the 7 Day Travelcard: it is not available on paper, but only loaded on an Oyster card. To take advantage of this weekly ticket, just buy an Oyster card and charge an 7 Day Travelcard.
Oyster Card or Travelcard?
If you plan to travel in the 1-2 areas, the Visitor Oyster card will always be cheaper than the Travelcard. The maximum daily cost cap applied to the Visitor Oyster ensures that you never spend more than £ 6.40 per day, while the price of the daily Travelcard is £ 12.
Kanoa advises the official website to consult interruptions or specifications on the types of tariffs.
