Please explain the best way for a family of 6 to travel about London.

Jump to last reply

This is a bit of a continuation of another post regarding tube/train travel in and about London and the use of 2x1 deals associated with that travel. However, 2x1 aside -- my friend and her family (6 adults total) will be staying for 5 days in Holland Park. It is their first visit to London. They want to see the typical tourist sights.

What is the best (1.easiest, 2.most economical) method of public transportation payment for them to use?

They will need transportation from Heathrow to the city and return. They will spend time in central London for The Tower, Westminster, St. Pauls, and the Trooping of the Colours on the 16th June etc. One day doing museums and shopping in Kensington, Knightsbridge area. With travel schedules I think its really only 3 full days in London and 2 partial days on either end connected with flying in and out.

Please, please....explain step by step in simple terms, for all us non-Brits.

Thank you.
