    Transport for London has announced its fares for 2015. Traditionally prices rise every January, but this year there is some good news. If you are using an Oyster or the new contactless system the daily price cap is actually coming down! In zones 1-2, where most visitors spend most of their time, the daily cap will reduce from £8.40 to £6.40, meaning that you would never spend more than that in a day, no matter how many tubes and buses you catch. I haven't yet done the maths but I think this will make Oyster by far the best option for most visitors. See here for more info, including caps for other zones: londonist.com/2014/11/2015-t...

      good idea to get a guidebook such as the Lonely Planet for Europe which is an excellent resource to have for the long term

    Transport for London is planning to move to a new payment system. Oyster will be phased out and you will be bale to use contactless debit cards instead, though I think there will be a period of overlap when both can be used (as at present on the buses). The Londonist has produced a useful article on how this is expected to work: londonist.com/2014/08/contac...

    But I'm not at all clear yet what the position will be for visitors from abroad who maybe don't have a contactless debit card. I'll keep monitoring the situation and post again if I find out.

      I haven't heard any more about it being phased out but they certainly seem to be encouraging the use of debit cards instead

      Well I only plan to fly into LHR and then find the way to where ever Stonehenge is and head there right away. I might not even need one for him.

      You can just use the Tube from LHR if you need to get into London, or the National Express buses. Stonehenge is near Salisbury so you'll need to take the train from London Waterloo www.nationalrail.co.uk or the bus from either Heathrow or Victoria coach station. www.nationalexpress.com Then you'll need bus or taxi from Salisbury to the stones themselves. The ordinary bus service which used to exist has now turned into a hoho, unfortunately: http://www.thestonehengetour.info/

    Temporary notice 19th April, 2014.

    The RMT Union has just announced that they are to hold another two of their strikes from 2100 hours on Monday 28th April for 48 hours and from 2100 hours on Monday 5th May for 72 hours. As always, these are designed to cause maximum disruption by being during the working week and will affect both Londoners and visitors alike. There will be a huge strain on other forms of public transport so travellers are advised to plan well ahead if they are visiting during these periods.

    I shall attempt to keep this information as current as possible should there be any changes.

    I have just heard on the BBC News in London that Tube (Underground / Metro) workers are going on strike for 24 hours on Boxing Day (26th December, 2012). Members of the ASLEF Union have today voted in favour of this action which will seriously disrupt transportation in London on this public holiday. They have also voted for industrial action on the 18th January, 2013 and 25th January, 2013. Here is a link.

    I shall update this if there is any change in the situation.
