Sep 6th 2008 5:46PM Yep, London can be quite expensive to the untrained eye. There are plenty of ways to “beat the system” if you are willing to listen and explore new ideas. Hundreds of tourists have been forced to use the tube (underground network) to travel one or two stops when they can walk it or take the bus to get there. You get to see much more about London by bus and to top it off; they do stop every 100-150m’s anyway, so it is not that far if you missed your stop.
Plenty of busses in Central London now have a system installed that calls out the stops and some of them even mention a tourist attraction which is ideal for any tourist trying to see a bit more of the city. There are a few more ways you can make technology work for you to help you save money around London, you just got to keep an open mind.
