Transportation in London and train to Edinburgh

Jump to last reply

If we are only going to use the tube or bus to get from Bloomsbury to the Tower of London and maybe one other trip, should we get Oyster cards, etc.? I would like to try a traditional black cab at some point and figure a short trip would be most cost effective. I am thinking either for dinner out one night or to Kings Cross station from our hotel in Bloomsbury. What is the consensus?

Also, we bought our train tickets online and have to pick them up at the self service machine. Should we do that early in our visit or pick them up the morning we leave? How early should we get to the station for our train on a Sunday morning?

Thanks again for your help!
