Where to stay in popular areas of London?
Camden – Camden is a musical hotspot, having been one of the centers of the punk movement and more recently, home to modern stars like Amy Winehouse. These days, it has an excellent street food market, clothing stores, like Lost 'n' Found (Primrose Hill) or Darkside (245 Camden High St), and music venues like the Lock Tavern and Underworld (both on Camden High Street).
Clapham – Located just south of the river, Clapham (along with nearby Brixton and Peckham) is full of energy. Sample local brews at the Craft Beer Co (11-13 Brixton Station Road), enjoy superb meat dishes at Haché Burgers (153 Clapham High Street), and take it easy in the afternoon with a stroll on Clapham Common.
From all of these districts you can be in central London within 20 minutes, making them ideal places to visit or base yourself during your stay.
Get Around London, London Public Transportation
London has a superb public transportation system, but it can be expensive so make sure you use any available discounts. When traveling on overground trains, be sure to ask for family tickets if you are traveling as a group (not singles for everyone). If you are staying for longer periods, a Family & Friends Railcard (£30) saves a third on all adult journeys and 60% on kids travel. When traveling in central London, it’s a good idea to buy a contactless Oyster Card (£5), which you need to charge at stations or magazine stores. Try to avoid traveling during rush hour (7-9:30 a.m. and 5-7:30 p.m.) as the crowds are dense and ticket prices are much higher. If you only need to travel around central London, avoiding the subway entirely can save money. The buses are much cheaper and almost as fast for most journeys. There’s also a bicycle hire scheme which costs £2 to join, then £2 for every 30 minutes (the first 30 minutes of each journey are free).
