I have included some clickable links to information that might prove useful during your stay in London. I am sure you will already have done your own research but these suggestions might be helpful.
This site provides information, timetables and sells tickets for the UK rail industry.
This site provides information on travel specifically in London. You can look up timetables for buses, tubes, over ground trains, the Docklands Light Railway (DLR) and river bus. It is clear and easy to follow.
A Visitor Oyster card is a smartcard and is a quick and easy way to pay for journeys on bus, tube, London Overground, DLR, TfL Rail, River Bus and most National Rail services in London. You can buy it before you leave home, have it delivered to your home address (even if you live overseas), put money on it and pay as you go. Alternatively, most modes of transport accept payment by contactless cards.
London is not renowned for good weather so it’s always best to check before you leave your hotel to see if you’ll need umbrellas and woolly jumpers or suntan cream and a parasol! If you’re taking one of my London tours, click on this link to see what weather you can expect. The forecasts are not always 100% correct as I have found to my cost in the past, but they’re a guide!
Similarly, this link will take you to the weather forecast for Hampton Court Palace so do check it before you set out on your journey into Surrey.
One of the best things about city breaks is trying out the food so, for the foodies amongst you, here is a link to Time Out’s recommendations for eating out in London!
I have included below links to highlight my credentials as a guide.
