GETTING AROUND

The easiest way to move around in London is to use public transport. You can use the Tube or Buses to go around the city. You can pay for public transport with your contactless debit/credit card or buy an Oyster card or Travelcard. If you plan to use a debit/credit card to pay for public transit, bring two cards, as the card reader can be finicky as to which card they might accept.

London College of Communication is in front of the Elephant and Castle Tube Station served by the Bakerloo and Northern lines. The area is also well-connected to various bus routes.

You can also rent a public bicycle to move around London.
