London travel tips

1) If you plan to travel a lot around London, buy an unlimited travel card

You can buy 7 Days Travelcard zones 1-2, which costs around £32 (€37) and get unlimited rides on public transport in London. The Travelcard can be added to your Oyster plastic card, which is the city's most common travel pass.

2) Even if you are not into science, the Science Museum in London will surprise you

The original facade of the Science Museum building is no less interesting than its exhibits (and there are more than 300,000 of them!). All items on display can be touched, twisted, and started. The most iconic exhibits are the legendary steam locomotives Puffing Billy and Rocket.

3) Drop by the Nightjar bar in Shoreditch with amazing cocktails

The Nightjar cocktail bar is a five-minute walk from the Old Street underground station. Each drink here is a real work of art (for example, a tree grows from a glass with Honey Smash, on which a bird sings, and Greenwich Sour is served in a pot-bellied glass on hobbit legs), while swing, jazz, and singing are performed on stage.
