children and travel in london

Jump to last reply

Hello we will be in London for 3 days with 1 extra day going to the Harry Potter studios before catching a train to Woking to stay with relatives for the remainder of our time in England.

Whilst in London we will be staying at the London County Hall Premier Inn close to Waterloo Station and visiting attractions such as Tower of London (already have tickets), St Pauls, Westminster Abbey and a few museums. We have 2 children (11 and 8).

I am unsure whether to get an Oyster card for my husband and I or a travelcard. I am also unsure as to what to get for my 11 year old daughter. I understand my 8yr old will be free on all trains/buses. Do i need to carry a passport for her id to prove she is under 11 every time we travel within London?

When we go to Watford for the Harry Potter day, do we need to purchase an additional ticket or top up the oyster cards? What about when we travel from Waterloo to Woking?

Thanks for your help!
