How To Travel Around London and Buy an Oyster Card – Important Tips!

Here are some very important tips on how to travel around London and buy an oyster card.
Especially if it is your first time visiting London, if you aren’t careful you can end up paying a lot more for your travel so it’s important you pay the right fare. You can use your oyster card or contactless payment card for lots of different types of transport on London TFL services. This includes buses, trains, tubes, Thames Clipper boats, trams and even the Emirates Airline cable cars.
My favourite thing to do is to travel on the old Number 15 routemaster buses. A real icon of London. I’ll show you all the tips and tricks on how to behave like a true Londoner and not to be barged out of the way by the locals when travelling on transport in London.
There are other ways to pay for London Transport including Apple Pay on your iphone or with a contactless credit or debit card. But I think it’s easiest to get an oyster card when you first arrive. Try to avoid buying paper tickets because they cost more!! And the buses don’t accept money so you must have an oyster or credit card or apple pay.

Tales From Tin Pan Alley – The Documentary
In August 2018 London’s Tin Pan Alley, Britain’s only music street, Denmark St is being murdered by Development. 8 music shops on short leases with even shorter built-in termination clauses remain with all business above below and behind demolished. Expect a Mall, Hotels, Flats, Restaurants and Bars. Bye bye Bohemia. Welcome a veneer of window dressing masquerading as music biz. More here

I have noticed that London buses don’t accept anymore money when you get on the bus so you must have an Oystercard or a credit card

DFrom Canada:

I’cve never been in any part of eurpo[pe. I live in the Greater Montreal area where we use an older system called Opus. Being a transit enthusiast (at age 73 I no longer drive), I foresee that in likely the next 5 years the RMT (Quebec gocernment agency that manages transit in 3 areas of quebec) they will simply and circumstantially be forced to get rid of the opus. This is because they will need something comparable to the Oyster Oro the Presto in Ontario) to handle the needs sensibly.

Who knows what they will call it, but as for London, If I had just got off the plane the firast thing I owuld want is an Oyser card. This seems such basic common sense, even from Canada!

I wonder if an Oyster card could also be used on Network Rail? (Mind you I would expect you’d need to laod it with a lot more than 15 GBP to do that!
