Oyster Cards

If you intend to be a regular traveller on London Transport, We suggest you obtain an Oyster card, this is cheaper and easier to use, visit for more details. I've even arranged for my card to be topped up automatically when the balance falls below a set level, so you don't even have to worry about how much money you have in it!

There are card readers in each Underground station and on the buses. These are a round attachment to the automatic and manual gates - you simply place the card (in its wallet) over the reader and hear a suitable beep whilst the gate opens for you. You must, however, remember to "swipe" your card at your destination as well, otherwise you'll be charged the maximum fare.

Buying Your Ticket

Whilst there are normally two kinds of ticket machines - fast ticket and ordinary self service - these are inaccessible to blind/vision impaired people, so we suggest you go to the sales windows. Here, you could not only buy a ticket for your journey, but could get an Oyster card, as mentioned above!

Ticket Sales Windows

In the Earl's Court Road Concourse

Enter the station via the Earl's Court Road entrance, go down into the concourse and continue forward (west) towards the gate line. The ticket sales windows are to your left.

In the Warwick Road Entrance

As you enter the station from Warwick Road, you continue (east) along the passage towards the gate line, the ticket sales window is to your right, just before the gates.
