If you’re a regular user of public transport then splash out £5 on a student Oyster card, it saves you 30% on travel cards and bus passes, and can also be used as a normal Oyster card. A normal Oyster card costs £2 and is much easier and cheaper to get if you’re an infrequent user of the tubes or buses.
The bus is a great way to get you orientated in a foreign city, you’ll learn how ridiculously close to one another some of the tube stops are, and that nothing is really as far away as it seems.
Make sure you’re kitted out with an A-Z map and that you pick up a tube, cycle path or bus map from your local tube station so you know your way around
For lovers of the Performing Arts, London’s theatre land is just a short tube ride away, or 8 stops on the bus from Urdang’s own bus stop (right outside the main entrance). Sadlers Wells is just down the road and it’s easy to be inspired by the numerous shows on offer!
