Whether you are planning your very first visit to the United Kingdom or are a regular visitor to Blighty, you will learn a great deal by reading the UK travel blog and articles. The United Kingdom, including England, Wales, Scotland and Ireland, offers a unique travel experience in that you can see such a variety of sights and landmarks within a relatively compact country. It is easy to get from A to Z as there is excellent public transport and unless you are planning to discover the countryside, where a car really is essential, you can sit back and leave the driving to someone else! The UK travel blog I have just read gave the low-down on a particular London bus tour company – (so useful – now I know which one to avoid!); you can find plenty of similar tips and hints by reading UK travel articles. If you are visiting London for the first time, you will probably want to see as many of the major tourist attractions as you can – read a UK travel blog to get the latest tips on what to prioritize so that you don’t leave anything out.

UK Travel Blog Hints and Tips:

  • Transport in London: Buy an Oyster card which covers all your travel by Rail, Underground and Bus.
  • Use the Underground or Tube to get from Heathrow to central London – it is by far the cheapest option.
  • Try not to use public transport before 9.00am – it costs almost twice as much to travel during the morning rush hour – no problem in the afternoon. If you are not in a tearing rush, use a bus instead of the Tube; sit upstairs – this way you get to see more!
