How to travel around London

By UALHalls 11 Sep 2019

´╗┐Travelling in London may seem daunting, but part of the beauty of the city is you can always discover somewhere new. 

However, you will never get lost with our guidance and top tips.

  1. Citymapper app - We can not stress how essential this app is. Even Londoners who have lived in the city for years refer to this navigation system all the time. It's great because it combines different methods of travel together, such as tube and bus to give you the quickest or even most 'rain safe' commute. 
  2. Tube Map London Underground - This app is great if you are relying on overground stations. It provides you with live train time and status updates. Plus some features still work when underground without signal. 
  3. Walking can be a great way to get to know your new city and home. You can discover local haunts you would miss when sticking to the regular commute. Late summer and autumn evenings are a great time to do this.
  4. Remember we have bike storage in all of our halls of residence (except Wigram House) and all of our colleges, not only is this healthy, this is a cost-effective and sometimes a time-saving option. 

Whichever method(s) you choose, enjoy getting around the city and to your college, it is all part of the experience of living in London.
