Aside from the standard public transport options, there are a few more that you can consider.
Walking is a great way to see the city and discover its hidden treasures. You're never far from an Underground station, so you can explore to your heart's content on foot - and then give yourself a rest when you've had enough! There are also many organised walking tours in London, often with multi-lingual guides; take in the city's top monuments, parks, sights and sounds or scare yourself silly on a tour of Jack the Ripper's London.
Alternatively, look at things from a different perspective, and try a river bus or river tour. Daily commuter services are run on river buses but you'll also find an array of dinner cruises, speedboat tours and Thames river cruises. They can be great fun and offer a new way to view the capital. Stop off at one of the riverside bars or restaurants, or even climb aboard HMS Belfast, moored close to London Bridge station.
Last but not least is the classic London taxi. From the iconic black cab to hundreds of private firms and executive chauffeurs, getting around London as a passenger can be a really fun experience, particularly around Christmas when the city's dazzling lights are a spectacle in themselves. This is also much more fun than trying to negotiate the crowded and complicated streets in your own vehicle, if you're a stranger to London!
In 2010, the Barclays Cycle Hire scheme was launched. With bicycles available at more than 400 pick-up points (cycle stations) in London, you can walk off the train and hop straight onto a bicycle! Available 24hrs a day, every day of the year. Simply drop the bike off again at any one of the cycle stations when you've finished with it.
If you think you might become a frequent user of the bicycles you can register online, or alternatively pay at the cycle station with a credit or debit card.
