|| Leaving London on four
wheels is rarely easy however chauffeured out on a bus
or coach should be a lot less stressful.
Getting out of London can be done via London’s distinctive
red buses. Although not all of them are double deckers
they do run from every corner of Greater London to areas
across central and greater London.
London has recently introduced The Oyster Card, which
enables people to pre-pay for bus and tube travel and
get a range of discounts. You can use the Oyster Card
in central London and also out into the Docklands.
Most buses now offer low-floors and are accessible to
wheelchair users and people with disabilities.
The wheels on the bus are supposed to go round and round
but in London you may find that they only go round once
or twice before you end up at a standstill.
If you have any sort of time restriction to get in
and out of London then a bus may not be the best option
as they are just as likely to get stuck in London’s
traffic as a car but if you do have the time sit back,
relax and take in the sights on the way.
Escaping the capital completely to explore one of the
UK’s other top cities can be done by coach. National
Express is the main coach operator in the UK
with destinations in England, Scotland and Wales. However
there are others including Greenline whose services are mainly to other areas in the south
Although there are collection points across the city,
the main coach terminal is just across
from Victoria train station.
From here you could also take a coach to break free
from the UK entirely. Eurolines offer
services from London to Paris, Amsterdam, Lyon and Dublin
with some special offers available at various time around
