Located in the heart of the city, the London waterloo train station and the underground from there, connect all parts of the city very well. Further, to get the best out of your visit to England, it is of utmost importance that you tour everything from the big dream city of London and a quaint countryside along the English Channel, to the historically significant Cambridge. All these places are at most 2-3 hours by train, from London waterloo.
TIPS TO PROCURE CHEAP STAY
For solo travellers, youth hostels are the best options. Be spoilt for choice at
www.hostelworld.com and www.booking.com
If you are travelling as a family or group, it is best to book an air bnb accommodation or an entire dorm to yourself (if you are 4, 6, 8 or 10 people). These websites are useful for booking cheap accommodation anywhere in the UK.
TIPS TO SAVE MONEY AND TIME ON TRANSPORTATION AND SIGHTSEEING
Remember to watch out for 2 for 1 passes at cafes, train stations and shops to cut down on your budget for the London wheel and the Thames cruise. Also to avoid waiting in the ridiculously long queues outside London eye, you might have to reach there as early as 8am, when the ride opens.
Buy the London day (13.40 GBP) pass that covers the metro and train lines that connect all zones of London.
If you are a student travelling from Europe, remember to carry your student ID cards to avail your discount on entry tickets into the chapels and colleges of Cambridge.
