|| Getting out and
about by bus or coach in West London is a doddle in comparison
to taking the car.
If you’re staying centrally (W1 or W2) hop on a
distinctive red bus, they will get you to all the main
London tourist destinations.
For going out of London to Paddington or Chiswick, hop
on a district line or circle line bus – yellow and
green lines respectively – that both have direct
links to tube stations and you’ll soon find yourself
heading through West London.
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 other coach operators including Greenline, whose
services are mainly to other areas in the south of England.
Although there are collection points across the city,
the main coach terminal is just across from Victoria
Train Station [map] .
From here you could also take a coach to break free from
the UK completely. Eurolines offer services
from London to Paris, Amsterdam, Lyon and Dublin, with
some special offers available at various times around
