Best way to get to national rail station for 7 day paper travel cards?

Jump to last reply

First off I'd like to thank the many regular fodorites who post here. Your advice to the masses has come in handy as I plan out our upcoming 6 1/2 day visit to London (leaving in just 3 days!) I just hope I can put together a decent trip report upon our return.

My question...we are staying on Rosary Gardens near the Gloucester Rd tube station. Victoria station appears to be the closest national rail station for us to purchase our 7 day paper travel cards. I read in another post a few weeks ago about the construction going on at Victoria station and that it should be avoided but for the life of me I can't find that post now to make sure I read it correctly. So...should Victoria station be avoided or is it not that bad while under construction? Without transportation cards yet in hand, what is the best way to get there? I should add that there are 4 of us, 2 adults and 2 teens, 13 and 15. I'd hate to pay the single fare (£2.40 ea) for tube or bus transport if there is a better option.

Thank you in advance!
