London Underground trade unions are planning a 24-hour strike on the Tube from 18:30 on Wednesday 5 August. If the strike goes ahead, Tube services will stop running from 18:30 on Wednesday 5 August until Friday 7 August. There will be no Tubes on Thursday 6 August. We are expecting normal service to resume on Friday. London Underground, Overground and TfL rail services are also set to run as per usual but are likely to be busier than normal. All passengers are advised to check their journey before they travel and allow additional time to get to their destination.

From 6 July 2014, it will no longer be possible to be able to pay for London bus fare with cash. Visitors will be able to board on buses with a Visitor Oyster card or Travelcard.
Visitor Oyster cards can be purchased in advance and sent direct to your home ready for your visit to London. A single adult fare is £1.45 with a Visitor Oyster card and we recommend this product as it is the cheapest way to pay for single journeys on London buses.
If visitors don’t have enough credit on their Visitor Oyster card for a single bus fare, they will be able to make one more journey on a bus and top up before your next journey.
You can purchase your visitor oyster cards by clicking here.
