London Public Transport Card Help

Jump to last reply

Hello, I would like assistance in determining best option for our trip as far as utilizing public transport while in London.

Any use of subway will be within zone 1 except for one morning when we will take subway to Greenwich.

We arrive late afternoon on a Friday, we MIGHT use transportation that day or just walk to areas close to our hotel.

Second day we will take subway from hotel in Soho to St. Pauls. From there on we will have 24 hr hop on/off bus ticket for sightseeing.

Third day we take subway to Greenwich, Thames River cruise for return. Might need subway ride or two late afternoon/evening to get back to hotel.

Fourth day we must get to Tower of London from hotel, and back to Soho area for afternoon tea.

We won't ride subway excessively, but I'm not sure the prepaid Oyster card is what we want? Or should we use pay as you go Oyster card (How easy and quickly is that to reload?). Can one card be used for more than one person or must each have their own? It says kids under 11 are free, but are there turnstyles (as in Paris) that you must pass through and if so, how do kids under 11 get through?

Thank you VERY MUCH in advance for your help.
