MLB London Travel Info
Most International travelers will come into one of London’s 5 airports; London Heathrow, London Gatwick, London Stansted, London City or London Luton. London Heathrow and London City are the best for being close to the city centre. The others will require public transport to get into the city. It wouldn’t be advisable to get Taxi rides from the airports into London as they will work out expensive. Car hire is possible, however, the traffic in the city is beyond tough to navigate and you will also have to pay congestion charges and astronomical parking fees. The train is the best mode of transport for an international traveler. It is easy to get connecting trains from any of the airports and post sign postings and ticket information will be available at all.
