Reviews from social networks
” “Do you accept cards? No” – that would be a standard conversation between you and a cab driver even 5 years ago as cabs were so old-fashioned refusing to automate the cars with terminals for card payments even tho Uber was getting so popular at that moment ♀️ However everything has changed and you can even pay contactless in the cab now ⠀ P.S. My personal life hack – use cabs instead of Uber on Friday/Saturday night as cabs don’t multiply your fare by 100 ⠀ My personal life hack – If it’s Friday or Saturday and you’re in London, take a cab because cabs don’t multiply your fare by 100 ⠀ “
” Usefulness Post. So, wherever you’re going – for cheap airfare go SOURCE . You just can’t find cheaper ones. It’s a search through a bunch of agencies and airlines, and you pick the best of the deals. Convenient.
Already bought a ticket? Great, then run to download the citywalks.me application, which will allow you anywhere in the world to quickly and easily navigate the area.
“And here is the cathedral itself from the outside. No photos are allowed inside. The entrance fee is 16£, which is 1300₽ in rubles. This price includes an electronic guide and a climb to the observation deck. Admiral Nelson and Commander Wellington, as well as other historical figures, are buried in the cathedral. “
” It was about 20 minutes this morning in the Covent Garden area. Walking into the market. It’s antique day there. I look at the stalls. Suddenly one of the vendors turns to me: “Would you like to renew your bowler?” I can never resist and always try on new hats. Usually they’re too small. But here. the bowler is in great condition. And the funny thing is, it’s from the same manufacturer, Dunn. But judging by the logo, a little older (1950s). The size is mine. The asking price is £25. What else do you need to be happy? learn to sell from John. Eye as an eagle. “
” London welcomes the famous cab cab:) a trip to Heathrow Center costs some 9000 rubles) Moscow rests) “
“If you go to London for a whole day – you need to buy an Oster card on the subway and put money on it + £5 which you will get back when you hand over the card (they don’t sell tickets on buses). One trip on the bus and tube is around £1.5-1.8 BUT once you’ve spent £6 on the day all other trips on any public transport will be free that day. If you’re staying further away from the center and need to use the train, then it’s best to buy a Day Pass (average £13, then you’re all inclusive). If you have 3 people with you – buy a Day Pass and 1/3 off each. If 4 people – 50% off all transport for the whole day. Look out for coupons at the metro ticket office – they give a big discount on all attractions and save you 50% off the price. “
” Gorgeous St. Paul Too bad you can’t take pictures inside. But I certainly didn’t spend 18£ for nothing to enter the stunning galleries under the dome. Where you can sit down and listen to the organ! But most of all, it’s the Eye of London! “
” And someone will be walking around London in two weeks! Visa obtained, rubles exchanged (at a crazy rate, by the way, 113.5 rubles per pound) “
” Subway stations are like Sherlock Holmes. But if you do not have 20 dollars for a day’s travel, you can only walk.
” Guardsman at Buckingham Palace, . On that trip I wanted to see the Beefeaters, but they, unfortunately, do not walk around outside the Tower, and a ticket to the museum costs, by the way, from £8.30, and the pound now – about 100 rubles (in 2013 it was about 50). Visiting the British Museum is free. “
” Victoria station has very handy phone charging lockers. You plug in, lock up, pay (£1.50 for half an hour, £2 for 50 minutes). The key with the locker number is with you. “
” London. Note The Tower of London. Perhaps one of the main symbols of Britain. A huge old fortress that remembers as far back as William the Conqueror. For so many centuries it has been a fortress, a repository of the crown jewels, a prison, and even a zoo. I remember, when I first started learning English, reading about the Tower in textbooks and pamphlets brought by my first teacher. What can I say about the Tower? Old as England itself and very big. The pleasure costs 25 pounds, which at the current exchange rate of 2500 thousand rubles. Looked at the crown jewels with interest, but I have to admit, our crowns, scepters and orbits look richer. “
” The tallest skyscraper in London is The Shard. It offers an amazing view of the city from a height of 310 m. Tickets (£29) are best booked in advance on the official website “
” It’s cheaper to call a cab from the hotel or restaurant than to get into a free car on the street. A trip from Heathrow Airport to the city center will cost you at least £60. Well, just to drive a few kilometers through the city center on average costs 15 – 20 pounds. “
“This is the last picture from London (. ) I bought: 2 magnets (a booth and a bus); a t-shirt and a souvenir bus. All cost £17 = 1360 p “
“Discovered a wonderful magazine find – a Dutch yoga-style magazine ! I just love their wise articles and colorful photos . Of course it costs like a book – £7, but it is one of the few magazines that I could read cover to cover with incredible interest! I advise all lovers of healthy magazines to buy at least one issue! I am inspired by ❤️ “
” Inside an ordinary British bus. I must say, the island’s public transport in general is very comfortable and tidy. The interior of this one-story bus is equipped with 22 seats for passengers, a place for a wheelchair and a place for luggage. There are 23 more people who can stand. During rush hours it can be crowded, but there is no comparison to, say, the overcrowded to the bone bus on route 25 in Khabarovsk. The double cars have another 41 seats upstairs; it is not customary to stand there. Public transport in the U.K. sticks to the schedule, though traffic jams sometimes cause delays. You have to pay for comfort: when I was last in London, a single ticket cost 2 pounds 30 pence, which is more than 200 rubles. But the Oyster card reduced the cost to 1.35. I generally preferred to take the Day Travelcard, but mainly because of the train. “
” I love this city! Huge crowds of people, the subway that I never understand, the left-hand traffic, the high prices (especially with the current exchange rate) all make it only more appealing! And when the weather is perfect as well, it’s bliss! “
“Still took a ride on the red double-decker bus. one trip costs 2.40 pounds, which is about 150 rubles! so dear friends!!! In Russia, we use public transport for almost free “
” And this is my biggest love of all flea markets: cutlery. Incredible variety of shapes, patterns, applications. At the top of the photo, for example, only cutlery knives, separate knives for fish and knives for meat lie side by side. And also separate wide and long knives for dividing into portions and putting fish on, if you’re not serving portioned cuts, but a big fish whole. The bottom spoons are serving spoons for appetizers. I’m afraid to even talk about the variety of spoons and their role in the sideboard. I particularly liked the spoon with the rose bush engraved on the spoon itself, and with a handle of antler, but 20 pounds. All right, 18, given what I read yesterday about bargaining skills, but I’m not yet so morally liberated. Would you buy a spoon for 1,000 rubles? And for 1500? And if just really liked it? “
The cheapest meal in London (as a meal for one) starts at a price of 852 rubles, although some establishments can go up to 1,278 rubles. Dinner with wine (or similar alcohol) for two ranges from 3,409 rubles to 4,262 rubles, with an average city check of 4,262 rubles.
Fans of McDonald’s burgers (or other fast food options – KFC, Burger King) can get a set of fries for about 391 rubles. You can enjoy a cup of coffee in the morning for 196 rubles, although the price for an average cappuccino can be as high as 221 rubles.
The average one-way trip on public transport (subway, streetcar or similar) will cost an average of 170 rubles, and the same by cab – 843 rubles. The examples give an idea of the general level of prices for transport in London, but the specific price of the trip depends on the mode of transport and the distance (or duration).
You can get a “beer in the room” from the store for about 120 rubles for a bottle, a small can of Coke for 68 rubles. Cigarettes in London are expensive and cost about 630 rubles for a pack of Marlboro.
