A well-developed economy, world-class attractions, ease of access to continental Europe - all this makes London attractive to foreigners. But at first time in a strange city you always feel insecure. Here are some tips to help you quickly adapt to local living conditions and feel yourself at home in London.
Exchange of money. Want to convert foreign currency into British currency? Do not be tempted to exchange the entire amount of cash directly at the airport - there this operation will cost much more. If you want to find the best exchange rate, visit comparecurrency.com.
Transport. To use public transport in London, you need an Oyster Card. Buy this card at all metro stations, and replenish - at any stop or train station. If you are a student, apply online for Student Oyster Card and save on bus and tram travel 30%. And people with disabilities can apply for a Freedom Pass, which gives them right to travel around London for free.
