London is one of the best family destinations in Europe with so much to offer for children and families especially with the Olympics on in 2012.

To help your family get around on London’s fantastic network of trains, buses and trams we highly recommend the Oyster card which is similar to Melbourne’s troubled Myki system except it works!!

All children under 10 can travel for free on Buses, Tube or Trams when travelling with someone who has a valid ticket or oyster card.

The oyster card can be bought online at and topped up as required.
