Eleven days in London - best options for getting around?

Jump to last reply

I know this topic has been addressed on this forum, but I am still not totally clear on options for public transportation in London. And, of course, things change, so any up to date information will be greatly appreciated.

We will be in London for 11 days in mid-June - staying in a flat near two tube stations in the City Centre area. We are two active travelers in our early 60s, who are comfortable with taking public transportation in large cities, as well as walking a lot. Although we have stayed for extended periods of time in Rome, Athens, Paris, Madrid, etc - this is our first trip to London, and we hope to see and experience as much as possible in the time we have there.

What is the most economical and practical option for buying passes on the tube and possibly the bus system? I know just a little about Oyster, London Pass, and a few other options, but rather than spend hours comparing the benefits and drawbacks of each, would really appreciate anyone who has experience pointing me in a good direction.

From what I'm reading, some of the London attraction passes come with transportation included for a certain number of days, but I have also read that these are not always the best options. What about buying passes in advance - good idea or unnecessary?

Any information will be much appreciated!
