The most useful hints, tips, and advice for a London trip

  1. Invest in a London Pass for sightseeing discounts and skip-the-line privileges
  2. Use an Oyster Card for public transit
  3. Look RIGHT when crossing a street (actually, always look both ways just in case)
  4. Make good use of London's plethora of free sights
  5. Have Indian food. You won't find any better outside of India itself.
  6. Take at least one guided walking tour
  7. For stays of several nights or more, a rental flat (apartment) might be cheaper than a hotel
  8. Do NOT rent a car to drive around London
  9. Pub grub makes for hearty, relatively cheap, relatively quick, authentic meals
  10. See at least one play or show—West End, The Globe, National Theatre... whatever. Just go.
