    Just a question for all our British members, especially those that live in London or travel to London regularly.

    Are there any special tickets that can be bought for public transportation i.e. Buses, The Tube, etc...?

    Me and my wife are about to travel to London in a few weeks and we were wondering if there was anything like this. For example in Paris you can get 4 day passes for about 30 Euros and you can ride on all Subways, Street Cars and Buss's during this time all day long.

    I have been to London, but when I was there before I did not look into these things.

    Well I will be heading out next week for London. Won't be online until then due to a rock festival that I will be attending.

    If there is anyone living in London or who might be in London, who would like to meet up for a Pint, send me a PM.
