its spelt ANYONE

and Marble Arch or Oxford Circle for Oxford Street. Tower Bridge is a long way out.... Can't remember which is best. Possibly Bank.

If by train you actually mean tube, then Oxford Circus (not circle!!) is best for shops.
If you mean train, then Liverpool Street.

For the Tower Of London, nearest station is Tower Gateway

A long way. Most of central london is walkable, but oxford street and the eye are probably as far apart as you can get.

Also I'm not sure why you are talking rail - surely you will come into london to whichever station your service terminates at? (ie: for me, down the east coast main line, would be kings cross).

is oxford street the best shops? which is the closest station to oxford st? xx

If you want the London Eye, you're best getting the tube to Waterloo.

ahh right, I forgot, you are the complete **** from that thread a few months ago, where you were proved beyond doubt, totally and utterly wrong.

Well congrats sir - you got me. I bet you feel really proud, and I can only thank you for correcting me. I have been a fool, and you have shown me the light.

Oxford Circus or Bond St are close to the Oxford St shops.

You've already been told this - its Oxford Circus (midway down Oxford Street/Regents Street), or Marble Arch and Tottenham Court Road at either end.

Best bet is to buy a day ticket for Zone 1 travel - this will give you unlimited travel on the tube around central London and you can visit plenty of places. It would appear from your post that you want to shop and fit in some sightseeing!

How are you getting to London and where do you arrive (particular station, airport etc)?

I haven't got a clue, but I THINK from Birmingham you get into St Pancras or Euston.

Then buy a zone 1/2 travel card for the tube.

anyone no how much same day return would be from birmingham when you do it online it comes up much more than it is if you go in and ask :-S

Euston to Oxford Circus appears to be just a 2 stop trip on the Victoria line on the tube.

zone 1 day travel is something like £5.90 if you buy after half 9, more if you buy after (buy it in london rather than new street)

no idea on fares - its easy enough to check yourself?

repped you all xx

Birmingham New Street usually terminates at London Euston. Buy a zone 1 day travelcard for £7.20 (if including peak time travel). Get the Victoria line (southbound platform) to Oxford Circus and start from there.

For the Eye, as already mentioned Waterloo is handy or you could go to Westminster and take in Parliament, Big Ben, Westminster Abbey etc.

Have a good time!

I live in London, Kerri.

If you're coming down from Brum, you'll prolly arrive in Euston and then need to take the victoria line into the city.

What underground stop you need very much depends on where you're going, obviously. There isnt much space inbetween one stop and the next ( for instance some of the underground stations are just round the corner to one another and you can easily walk from one t'other ).

If you're wanting the shops then go for Marble Arch at one end, Oxford Circus at the other xx

And don't be scared by the crowds... us londoners are mean for a reason.. we have to be lol xxx

Euston virtually is Central London! Just stroll down Tottenham Court Road from Euston and you'll hit Oxford Street in just over 10 minutes! Good luck with the trek for the whole length of Oxford Street though. Tottenham Court Rd to Marble Arch isn't a walk I'd want to do.

As for things to see and do.... The south Bank is the usual place I'd suggest for a pleasant stroll down the Thames from Waterloo... then cross over to the North Side after walking to Tower Bridge.
#29
same day returns are the most expensive tickets unless booked in advance....even a day before will save you something

shops..... depends on what shops you want if you want the hight st crap like top shop etc then oxford st if you are after something a little more designer then head to the strand or there are some boutique shops around covent garden............markets head to camden

all depends what you wanna do for the day

Indeed... I work 5 minutes from there....... Always enjoyable on a hot sunny day watching all the bir.... I mean... people walking past whilst sitting on the grass next to the London Eye having a spot of lunch.

Actually - I have Merlin passes... I might make use of them and have a free go on the Eye this week! :w00t:

I think I kinda like seediness in a way lol!

I miss the dirt and the air full of fumes...

When I've been away I dont feel I can breathe properly till I'm fully polluted again!

I'm nuts I know lol

Besides some of victoria is nice, I have fond memories of living there with my ex-husband a few yrs ago :) xx

checkout white city for westfield

I used to live in Pimlico and worked in Victoria for many years. I miss it but I don't!!

Like yourself I have quite a few memories from the past but it is a bit of a polluted pit now. They've spent a bit of money on the area to make it look nice but it's still quite grotty and far too many people to be enjoyable.

I like the fact that there are soooo many pubs in and around Victoria. ;-)

Pubs, restaurants all that.

It's the whole lifestyle of London really thats so much fun :)

Love London, and as much as the tube is very uesful and efficeint, I don't think you can beat walking round London. You get to see so much more of the real London, and not just the tourist traps.

Gosh, the lifestyle is great. It burnt many a hole in my pockets and took up many nights and weekends. There's always so much to do, places to go, people to meet...

It's strange getting used to a calm lifestyle now!
Where in Victoria did you used to live?
