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

There are ticket sales windows in each concourse.

In the Eastbound Concourse

The ticket sales windows are on the left-hand wall, as you enter from the subway. That is towards the right-hand end of the far wall as you enter via the entrance beside the car park.

In the Westbound Concourse

The ticket sales window is on the left-hand wall as you enter the station. Note that this is only open during peak hours.
