How to Travel Around England and The U.K For Cheap

Hi

Traveling around London, and all of Europe for that matter, is notoriously expensive due to the bad exchange rate. The dollar has been creeping back, and most travel around The U.K. isn't that expensive if you know where to look. Luckily, Europe is home to a lot of budget travel options like cheap flights and trains.

1. If you are traveling around London, which most people do, the easiest way to get around is the London Underground. The tube, as it is known, expands the entire London area, and most of the suburbs. For those flying into Heathrow Airport, or any of the other London airports, the tube is the way to go. You can by a one day pass on the tube or a three day pass. The great thing about the tube is that it's quick and relatively cheap, but you miss all of the scenery.

2. For those in England that want to see the scenery on the way to the sites, the famous double decker busses are the way to go. The best thing to get is called a hop-on-hop-off pass. Busses run throughout the city and go pretty much everywhere.

3. For travel between each city, England and Britain is small enough to get around by train. The trains are relatively cheap if you book ahead of time. Eurail passes are not covered on the british rail network. The Eurostar goes between Paris and London which costs about 50 pounds per tip. Eurail customers will receive a discount to ride it usually. Trains between London and Scotland take about 5 hours and cost about 50 pounds as well. Trains are great because you get to see the English and Scottish countryside.

Keep sharing and reading
Thanks

Hello
Throughout its long history, it's been a green and pleasant land, a sceptred isle and a nation of shopkeepers. It's stood as a beacon of democracy and a bastion of ideological freedom, as well as a crucible of empire and a cradle of class oppression. Magna Carta, the King James Bible and the welfare state were all dreamt up here, but then again so were beer bellies, Bovril and Mr Bean. It's a nation of tea-tippling eccentrics and train spotters, of dog lovers and footy fanatics, of punk rockers, gardeners, gnome collectors, celebrity wannabees, superstar chefs, free-wheeling city traders, pigeon fanciers, cricket bores and part-time Morris Dancers. To some it's Albion. To others it's Blighty. To many it's the most eccentric, extraordinary and downright incomprehensible place on earth. Welcome to England.

4.There are plenty of cheap flights around Europe, including the U.K. Ryanair and Easyjet are two budget airlines that fly daily around Britain and continental Europe. Flights can be very cheap, around 20 pounds, but you have to go to airports outside the city which costs extra. Europe is compact enough that I recommend train travel everywhere to see the great European landscape.
