London without the Underground
See more above ground. The sun is better.
So the London Underground is on strike, but use this as an advantage to see London. You would be surprised how easy London is to navigate on the surface. Some of the metro stations are so close it is actually faster to walk! Covent Garden and Leicester Square spring to mind. The London bus network is excellent, armed with just a map and the bus diagrams on every stop you will soon be hopping on and off buses to reach your destination with the added benefit of really seeing London. Try and grab the front seat on the top and you can peer into offices and gardens. Ensure you buy an Oystercard to make it very cost effective too ! Buses will take you everywhere the metro does not go as well. I even saved myself 5 pounds catching a bus from Heathrow to south London which I never knew about rather than catching the tube and the train ! Every cloud has a silver lining. Embrace the bus and see London as the natives do.
