Best Option for London Travelcard?

Jump to last reply

My husband and I will be in London Christmas week. I'm hoping you all can help me figure out (or confirm my thoughts on) the specific Travelcard to buy.

We'll be in a hotel in central London on our first night. The next day we plan on doing some sightseeing in central London and then will then need to go to a house in Chiswick (zone 2 or 3 depending on which tube stop) we'll be staying at for the rest of the week.
We'll want to visit Hampton Court (zone 4?) and Greenwich (zone 2?) during our time there.
Most things will be closed on the 24th, 25th and 26th so I don't know how much we'll need to card on those days, but there are London Walks on the 24th and 26th so we might want to do one and go into Central London on those days.
We won't need to use it to get to/from Heathrow.

Am I correct in thinking that a Zone 1-4, 7 day Travelcard is still the best way to go here? We'd be using the card potentially for a span of 6 days (though only 4-5 days of actual use). I'd like to take advantage of the 2for1 tickets available when one has these passes.

Where would be the best place to purchase the paper Travelcard eligible for the 2for1 tickets near the Sheraton Park Lane Hotel?

Thanks!
