London is one of planet earth’s most iconic cities. Big Ben, the Houses of Parliament, the mighty River Thames and hipster-central Brick Lane are just some of its main sites. And, thanks to an extensive public transport system in and around the city, it can be cheaper than you think. In fact, at any given time, there are over 8000 scheduled buses operating on over 700 different routes across the city.
By far one of London’s main coach stations, Victoria Coach Station is also London’s largest, seeing roughly 14 million passengers a year. Situated in Central London it's ideal for visitors on a short break to the city, and it’s well-connected to the Victoria Underground line. It is served by the two main coach lines in the UK, National Express and Eurolines, as well as some smaller lines. Coaches regularly run from central London to all main airports, including Gatwick, Heathrow and Stanstead.
London, as the UK’s main transport hub, is served by a huge number of coach companies. Flexibus, Eurolines, and National Express all regularly service London, with many thousands of coaches arriving and departing in London’s myriad terminals daily.
London is one of the most iconic cities on earth. As such, it is also one of the most expensive! Luckily, travelling to London by coach is usually much cheaper than arriving in London by any other means, and regular deals and discounts can mean getting there from elsewhere in the UK can be significantly cheaper than going out for dinner there. As an added bonus, travelling to London by coach also means that you can enjoy the spectacular views of central London at street level.
It goes without saying, London is one of the world’s premier destinations. Not only centre stage for global politics, fashion and music, it's also one of the world’s most historic capital cities and has over 2,000 years of history. Alongside the main attractions, make sure you check out one of the many eclectic street markets, offering everything from crafts, vintage clothing through to street eats. When you book your coach ticket to London, buying an option with an included day pass for public transport can be a good option. If you don’t have an Oyster Card a day pass can cover you for an unlimited number of trips across the city, and will usually include bus and underground travel. Your ticket price is usually dependent on which zones you travel in, so double check beforehand.
