Yet another London Oyster vs. Travelcard thread!

Jump to last reply

I know this topic has been addressed ad nauseum, but I feel like I need someone to help me address our specific plans. We would like to do as much walking as possible and aren't concerned about a difference of 1-2 pounds here or there.

1. Arriving via train (Britrail pass) from Ludlow to London Euston on a Sunday. Will then need a transfer from Euston to St Pancras where our hotel is.
- What is the area around St Pancras like? Urban, financial, hippie, loud, etc.?

2. On Monday and Tuesday, we will need to travel from this St Pancras station/area for sightseeing.
Our must-sees/dos: British Museum, Tower of London, London Eye, Westminster Abbey, Harrods. In addition, we're considering taking a boat cruise +/-dinner on the Thames if possible, and we'd also like to get some amazing authentic casual cheap Indian food.
- Does this constitute travel outside of Zones 1-2? We are not otherwise planning to travel outside these zones.

3. On a Wednesday we will leave from St Pancras via Eurostar.

4. We'd like enough flexibility that we can add a sight here and there if we're up to it.

Please share your advice regarding how to plan our travel arrangements, starting with Euston. Two 1-day Travelcards or PAYG Oyster? Can either be easily purchased immediately in Euston in the early evening? Is the 2-for-1 very helpful to us? I only see offers for Tower of London and London Eye - nothing else on our wishlist.

Many thanks yet again. Let me know if I can provide more details.
