And so our Europe travel began in London. We took the tube (Piccadilly line) to Shafa’s brother’s house in Wood Green. The area was reachable by Piccadilly line, so no train change needed!
Of course, we use Oyster card in our London travels to enjoy cheaper rate & price caps (refer TFL website for details). The card can be bought from the airport train station. Just ask anyone, they’ll guide you.
Alternatively, you can buy it online (we prefer to shop for UK tickets at http://www.visitbritainshop.com – it’s a one stop centre). You can key in your departure date, they’ll make sure to deliver the card to you on time. Only downside, you’ll have delivery charges (in British Pound). You can gauge & decide whether you want to be worry free and have the card before your journey or just buy it at Heathrow airport. We’re sure Malaysians will do the latter, considering our currency against GBP. 🙂
In any case that your destination is using another line, be sure to check out the London tube map. You can view the map at TFL website, also they will have a journey planner at their website.
Alternatively, you can download an app called London Journey Planner. But personally, our favourite app is called FetchMyWay (for Android) & Rome2Rio (for iOS). It will literally gets you from anywhere to anywhere (it doesn’t necessarily have to be station names), with details on costs & timing. Also there are options of different transportation alternatives (including walking!). Below are some screenshots of the app:
That’s all for our tips on London journey plan. See you in next entry!
