2 FOR 1 ADMISSION TO TOWER OF LONDON

by tabando

SO IF THE QUESTION IS ABOUT A TRAIN STATION, CAN SOMEONE TELL ME WHAT ARE THE POSSIBLE NAMES OF THE TRAIN STATION SO THAT AS I SCROLL DOWN ON THE CHOICES AT LEAST I COULD SEE SOMETHING I AM FAMILIAR WITH... AGAIN THANKS FOR A QUICK RESPONSE

Thing is, are you actually travelling by train?

You have to travel by train to take advantage of this offer. Although you may not be asked to show it, you are supposed to have the rail ticket with you.

If you want to risk it, you could just choose any of the stations on the list (they are all over the UK). London-area stations might be more feasible e.g. Barking, Elephant & Castle, Romford, Brentwood.

But if you don't actually have the train tickets, and they ask to see them, you will be in a difficult position.

Please don't shout.

Where are you staying? What does the map say the nearest station to you might be?

Tower Hill is your ultimate destination in most cases, sometimes not. Depends on where you start from. It might be Tower Gateway, Fenchurch Street or even London Bridge.

The list of stations on that page is every station in the country on the National Rail network. As said, this includes the various and many London stations.

In a response to your question on October 6, Dabs posted a good reply at 03.35 - about if you are getting the Heathrow Express to Paddington, go to the Padington train station and buy a day pass and it will have the correct logo on it. Have at look at the responses to your questions. It really doesn't matter which station you put as your originating station - I think it is just for statistical purposes. I live in Newark and that station, although a mainline station, is not listed, so I just put Nottingham and throughout the six years I have been using the 2/1 offers, it hasn't made a jot of difference. Btw, over the six years that I have been using the vouchers, I have been asked to show my train tickets twice...... can't remember where but it certainly wasn't the Tower as I last went there over 20 years ago!!

You know not everyone knows that to type in capitals is considered "shouting". I certainly didn't for quite a while when I was first on the computer.
I thought it just made it easier to read or emphasized a point. But it is not really easier to read in capitals
But ust in case the original poster did not know i thought it a good idea to explain

Perhaps you don't know how to use this website yet but if you click on London forums you will find that I answered your question the last time you asked it. You do NOT have to have a train ticket from outside of London, a travelcard which is used on buses/tube/DLR is London is fine but as I mentioned technically it is supposed to have the crowsfoot logo on it. But as Hawkhead says, they rarely ask to see your train ticket and I know they didn't ask us at the Tower.

You can also see all of the questions you ask if you go to your homepage and click on forum responses

Travel Tips for London

Soho

by fsayed

Soho is a must see for Young tourists. Its a party central and it doesn't stop till dawn. Standing in front of a Greek Resturant and talking to the resturant bouncer for 5 hours and looking at all the night owls strolling, sometimes stumbling, by.

Westminster Bridge

by dvideira

This picture was taken from the bridge itself and shows a good point for us to take a boat to cruise on the Thames.

Going across Westminster Bridge to the south bank, we now will find the London Eye, a massive ferris wheel that was the city's millenium gift to itself... I missed it... unfortunately I was there a little early...

Following back toward the Tower on the south bank, we will find the Royal Festival Hall, Gabriel's Wharf, and the Royal National Theater.

A useful masterpiece

by sourbugger

The plan of the London Underground is a masterpiece of simplicity, that was originally drawn up by a young draughtsman called Harry Beck. It was based on the electrical diagrams he was used to doing all day. Although it was at first treated with scepticism, it caught on in a big way and is now an indispensible part of London Life.

I've included a copy of the original in the picture. It's had to change somewhat over the years, but the basic format is still clear. The design was so brilliant it has been adopted by just about every other mass transit system across the globe.

It's also been turned into works of art over the years, including a very famous poster for the Tate Art gallery which showed tube lines in lines of paint. The advertising on the tube often plays with the map, or inserts new and sometimes amusing station names.

One of my favourites is however the one by Paul Hogan, who advertising that famous Australian beverage (the one in the blue tube) is stood in front of a Japanese tourist and an underground map. He is asked "How do you get to Cockfosters?" to which Paul replies "Like this!" as he extravangantly downs some of the amber nectar.

Try a 99 ice cream :o)

by miso80

You walk up to an ice cream van right next to the Tower Bridge..and what ice cream do you ask for?

You ask for a 99 lol or that is what my British friend kept on calling it while he laughed at me with my 'touristy british hat' on. Its basically a a double cone, with the usual ice cream and a flake stuck into it. Sprinkles, syrup, etc. are optional on the ice cream.

Supposedly, at one point this was for only 99p back in the day lol...but the price has changed now ;)

tube etiquette No 6: Large Bags

by Cham

When carrying large bags on the tube please be careful of other people... I have seen someone almost knocked on the tracks because of a guy with a huge rucksack span round to talk to his girlfriend walking behind him.

when entering and exiting the station, instead of using the normal gates which you're likely to get stuck in... go to the far left or the far right and you'll see a larger gate usually manned by someone in a bright blue (tube staff) uniform, and they'll let you through.
