Get an oyster card or use your contactless bank card
Getting around London is an easy task as long as you know where you are heading. The public transport is great, with trains, tubes, buses, the DLR, and river transport. No matter where you need to go, there are so many ways to get there and it won’t take much time at all. Rather than faffing around with paper tickets, the cheaper way to travel is with your contactless bank card or an oyster card. With an Oyster, you would need to top it up before you go but it makes it so easy to travel from A to B.
Plan what you want to do before you go
There are so many things to do in London, from visiting the museums to visiting their many foodie spots such as London cheese shops, Borough Market, Michelin-starred restaurants, and bakeries. You can head to places such as the Natural History Museum, Science Museum, V&A, and more. There are also many tourist spots such as Buckingham Palace, the London Eye, and Big Ben, as well as the Houses of Parliament and Westminster Abbey. Some attractions can get busy so it’s good to book your tickets before you go. You can also check the opening times and days too.
Find a good hotel deal
One of the most important things about your trip is finding a good hotel that you can stay in while you are exploring the city. A great example is the Park Plaza London Riverbank which is in a great location. When looking for the right hotel you want to find somewhere tailored for your party - such as a family focused or romantic hotel - and also check the location and amenities it has. This helps you to enjoy your break to the fullest.
