    Transit from where to where? Heathrow is well serviced with bus, underground and train, as well as taxi service, so you can be in central London within around 40 minutes of leaving Heathrow...on a good day!

    Gatwick is on a good trainline so is easy to do and much smaller than Heathrow so its a nicer airport, in my opinion. about 9 years ago

    Get an Oyster Card. You will be able to use it on buses and trains and pretty much everywhere.

    Trains are amazing. London may be scattered with stations but finding your way through connecting trains across several lines is a way to experience London in itself. about 9 years ago

    The London Tube is a great system. There are mobile apps to monitor status of each line for your iPhone. Beware on weekends - many lines have partial closures as they fix and gear up for the Olympics. Get an Oyster card if staying for several days. Alternatively, you can buy unlimited day passes to use on tube and buses - be mindful of the time restrictions on those passes (I recall that you cannot use them before 9:30am). Also, if you buy an Oyster, you often pay a £5 deposit - you can get that back by turning in your card at a ticket booth as you leave the city. I do that at Paddington station before I leave the tube and switch to the Heathrow Express back to the airport. about 9 years ago
