The London Underground (colloquially known as the Tube) is the oldest and second largest (after Shanghai) metro in the world. Henry Beck’s iconic map directs passengers across 11 lines and 270 stations, five of which lie outside the M25 orbital motorway.
Located a few minutes walk from London’s Moorgate and Liverpool Street stations, the tube is the quickest and easiest way to get to the hotel. It’s also the most cost effective and travel is paid for with an Oyster card, which you can buy online and then top up at stations and local shops during your stay or by using contactless payment cards. The Oyster card can also be used on London buses, the DLR and the Overground.

Contactless cards: If your bank card shows the contactless payment symbol, you can use it to pay as you go straight away. You’ll pay an adult rate fare. Many contactless cards issued outside the UK can be used to pay as you go for travel (overseas transaction fees may apply)
Mobile Payments: Using a mobile payment to pay to on the tube network is the same as using a contactless card. You can make mobile payments with devices such as phones, watches, key fobs, stickers or wristbands.
Oyster card: A smart card that you add money to, so you can pay as you go. You can pay as you go to travel on bus, Tube, tram, DLR, London Overground, most TfL Rail, Emirates Air Line and Thames Clippers River Bus services.
