    If you're day-tripping in London I do recommend buying a One-day Travelcard which is valid for all forms of transportation and you can even get to Heathrow Airport with it. It costs about 5 Pounds but it depends on how many zones it is valid for.

    London Bus!

    If you buy a day ticket you can hop on and off as you please! They are also valid for the tube as well. So it is best to buy a one day travel card from the tube station as previously mentioned and then your journey begins.

    Alternatively, if you specifically want to see the sights as in Buckingham Palace, Harrods etc you can pay I think it is arounf £8-12 to catch a tourist bus that drives round the sites and you can hop on and off as you please.

    So handy
    a plastic card that is prepaid, can be topped up at anytime.
    the last visit, we bought a 7 day, kept us going from Heathrow and back to Heathrow.

    If you are on a budget just get a £3 bus pass from a vending machine and hop on and off regular buses as much as you like.

    We bought cards that allowed us to travel using the underground. It is a great way to get around in the city.
