    London Underground Help

    Going to london on friday for what would have been the MJ concert, still going with mates tho for a long weekend.

    Was wondering tho, is their a weekend ticket you can buy for the underground as i am assuming this will be the easiest way for us to get anywhere, for example im staying in Covent Gardens and will be going to the London Dungeons and also to the Gielgud Theatre to see avenue q. So instead of paying fair each time i ride what is the cheapest option i can get.

    Also anything good to do in London would be a help

    cheers garry !

    Get yourself an Oyster card matey, you can pay £5 which gives you unlimited tubes all day and you just swipe the card at the turnstiles.

    They the day prices,I'm not sure if they do 3 day ones or whatever,I've heard of people mentioning the Oyster card,info is on site but I don't know much about it myself,I doubt worth getting 1 if just for a w/e I imagine.

    Top up £10 once then it should take max £5 a day.

    Yes, you can get them from the ticket office and also top them up, they can also be used on buses.

    You can also top them up online so it is 'Pre-loaded' before you travel. All for £5 per day, awesome.

    could order it before you go,or I guess you buy at the kiosks at stations.
