London is a beautiful country to visit. There is something to entice every kind of visitor and draw them to the charm of the city. A guided tour or a self-planned tour is an excellent way to get around the city and live-out unique memories. The crime rate is also low, making it a city for families to safely enjoy themselves.
Touring and travelling around London as a family can be expensive. The first thing you will need is an Oyster Card. The travel card will ensure that you can make a huge saving when you use different modes of public transport. Apart from the savings, getting around the city is easier with the Oyster Card, preloaded with the fare amount, than having to stop to buy tickets for buses, trains or trams.
