My best travel tips
Money and cost
Using a Visitor Oyster Card is more than 50% cheaper than buying one-day paper Travelcards or single tickets with cash.
Get an Oyster Card: An Oyster Card will save you time and money when it comes to those pesky travel related costs that seem to gobble up our cash. Grab an Oyster Card (which is FREE, with a small refundable deposit) from a Tube Station and preload a given amount onto the card. When using an Oyster Card, your journey is not only discounted but you’ll also have a maximum daily capped amount that you can spend in one day. This means that after doing 3 or 4 journeys, the rest of the day’s travel will be totally free around the whole of London!
Walk between tube stops: Speaking of travel, there are quite a few stations where it’s actually quicker to walk rather than take the tube/bus. Case in point being Leicester Square to Covent Garden, the walk will take less than 3 minutes, which is quicker than going underground on the tube and won’t cost you a dime!
Museums and art galleries are FREE: Speaking of free stuff, don’t forget that the likes of the Natural History Museum, The Science Museum, The British Museum and much more are free for anyone to visit. Spend a day wandering through the many historical artefacts and enjoy the rich heritage the city has to offer. Obviously, donations are welcome, though in no way obligatory.
Tipping isn’t essential: Tipping isn’t as big a deal as it is in the United States or other countries but that doesn’t mean it isn’t appreciated. Usually, a small 10-15 percent tip is more than fine for a restaurant whilst there is no need to tip at any bar or for drinks (again, it’s appreciated but never essential, in fact, most Londoners don’t – especially on a night out where you’re getting several drinks in). There’s also no need to tip when hailing a cab, though it often makes sense to round up the amount to the nearest pound.
Tours and attractions
West End shows aren’t always expensive : If you want to grab a show in the west-end and you’re not too fussy on what you see, then head straight across to the official TKTS Booth smack bang in the centre of Leicester Square. TKTS sells all remaining unsold tickets for shows on the day, which is usually heavily discounted. You will always be given the best seats available and you can even choose from the available seats. I do this almost every time I go to the theatre!
You can visit Big Ben for FREE: Big Ben is the bell inside the Queen Elizabeth II Tower that chimes across London. Attached to the Houses of Parliament it’s only accessible by invitation. One of the easiest ways to grab yourself an invitation (if you live in the UK) is to ask your local MP for an invite (find out who your local MP is here) – they will put your name forward and will issue you some free tickets for a tour! It’s a unique perspective that most people will never have seen!

Transportation
Especially at busy times, it's actually faster to walk between stations such as Covent Garden and Leicester Square.
