NEW YORK - Oct. 26, 2023 - PRLog -- London Calling

By Chef Jade

Samuel Johnson famously said, "When a man is tired of London, he is tired of life, for there is in London all that life can afford" I won't speak for my male readers out there, but I can tell you that this girl will never tire of London. Even after traversing the town for a week straight (and wearing out my favorite walking shoes in the process) I still can't wait to dive back in. Here's how I explored London.

Getting Around

One of my favorite things about London is how easy it is to get around. I rarely rent cars when I travel (need the money for my food budget!) so I tend to rely on public transportation and my own two feet. Lucky for me, London has very walkable streets and an excellent public transit system. The London Underground - or, "the Tube," as it's affectionately known - is the oldest subway system in the world, one that millions of Londoners still rely on to get around this sprawling city.

If you plan on taking public transit even half as much as I did, definitely buy an "Oyster Card." This pre-loadable plastic card - available at visitor's centers and transit stations - allows for quick scanning at Tube stations. And because there are discounts associated with the Oyster Card, it will also save you a bunch of money compared to buying several individual tickets. And London truly is your oyster (sorry, had to) with this card: it will also get you on trams, buses (which are plentiful) and even river buses that zip around the Thames. There really is no reason to take a cab in this city, unless you want the experience.
