London Travelcard Question...

Jump to last reply

My mom, sister, and I are traveling to the UK in a few weeks, and will have 3 days in London.

On the second day, we'll be doing Tower of London and Shakespeare's Globe, so I would like to use the 2-for-1 offers that day. Would it make the most sense to have Oyster cards for the first and third days, and then purchase one-day Travelcards just for the second day (to be able to take advantage of the 2-for-1's)? If so, do we have to purchase the Travelcards that morning, or can we buy them the day before for the next day? Sorry, I hope this makes sense.

Also, our hotel is near the V&A Museum, so does anyone know where we could purchase Travelcards near there? I'm wondering if it might be too much effort just to save one admission at the Tower and one at the Globe.

Lastly, would we all need the Travelcards, or just one of us (the one who'll be purchasing 2-for-1)? I realize that the third person will just have to pay the normal admission prices.

Any help would be really appreciated. Thank you!
