RICHFOTO & THE AMAZING LONDON 2012 TRAVEL INFORMATION

We went on the Emirates Air Line the other day which was excellent and well worth a visit. Hopefully they will keep it on after the London 2012 Olympic Games. Couple of tips though!

1. Travel from Royal Victoria to Greenwich outbound first. There is nothing at Royal Victoria, so you just travel back. If you go over to Greenwich first, you can grab some food & have a wander about, then travel back. Not sure why they haven’t sorted anything out to do or see at Royal Victoria, seems a bit crazy really.

2. Make sure you turn up with a charged up Oyster card! This will mean you can join the boarding queue straight away, which cuts out an otherwise massive wait with unprepared tourists, to purchase tickets.

A great London day trip that might work could be, Emirates Air Line from Royal Victoria to Greenwich, Thames Clippers from Greenwich to Westminster. Take a flight on the London Eye. Then Thames Clippers to return again. You’ll see loads of London all in one go from river views to views from above.

So there you go, that was your amazing London 2012 travel information! *BING BONG*
