London offers no shortage of transport options to travel around the city. Whether you want to get somewhere quickly or take a moment to absorb the scenery and culture, check out our travel suggestions to get you from A to B.
Buses, cycling and River Bus
Did you know you can get around London via the River Thames? Be prepared for a slower and more leisurely scenic route, there are often refreshments and WiFi available (so you can sit back and relax).
It's cheaper if you use your Oyster card on board, and it gives a different perspective on the city.
Taxi, Tube and Walking
With 24-hour bus routes and a 24-hour Tube service on the weekends, taxis tend to be more of a luxury than a necessity in London. However if you do find yourself out without a convenient way of getting home, Transport for London offers a minicab service to help you get home. This service can be used in any part of London, 24 hours a day.
It's also possible to hail one of London's classic black cabs in the street.
Don't underestimate walking! Most places are accessible by foot, and this is by far your cheapest mode of transport. Many famous sites, landmarks and parks are within walking distance of each other, and you can always join free guided walking tours.
Our South Kensington accommodation is close to great London sites including the museums along Exhibition Road, Kensington Palace and Hyde Park.
