Phoning home from London

We will be in London soon and would like to know the least expensive way of calling home. We were warned about the high charges of using a phone card from our own carrier. Has anyone had any experience using a prepaid international phone card purchased in London? Any pros, cons, problems, or hints? Thanks for your help.

I bought a prepaid phonecard at a snack stand at Victoria station. I found it very convenient and easy to use.

Purchase a phone card from the local post office once in London. The card I purchased was 10 BPS for 200 minutes at 5 pence per minute with no connecting charge. They come in 5, 10 and 20 BPS increments. Very simple to use, just follow the instructions. Called home every night to keep in touch. Have a wonderful time.

Do hotels typically charge you for using their phone to make a call with your phone card?

What about making local calls in London? Can I buy a phone card for this purpose? I find putting in coins at a phone booth too much hassle.

The cheapest way is to buy a phonecard at Costco or most stores in the US. Look for sales. Make sure they have access numbers in most countries.
