I must be, I've spent most of the morning trying to work out the best way to travel around London with my wife and child next month.

Travelcards for various zones, on or off peak, children traveling free (how long has that been true, I paid last time), visitor oyster cards which is the most confusing thing ever, then delivery costs, but buying online doesn't appear to be any cheaper than buying from a station so why buy in advance, then the most confusing bit of all, some travel cards are out of stock, but can be bought at stations or at a partner website.

Don't they just print the things off and impregnate the magnetic strip thing with the details of what you've bought?

An hour and a half of reading various websites and making various calculations later I have no tickets for traveling around London and a headache.


So, people who understand how the big city works better than this confused village idiot;

If you were going to that there London with your wife and 8 yo daughter on a Monday (arriving into Euston around lunchtime), stopping in a hotel in zone 4, taking in a show in the west end that evening, going back into the city for touristy stuff after breakfast on the Tuesday before heading home from Euston that evening.

What would you buy and how?
Some men are born mediocre, some men achieve mediocrity, and some men have mediocrity thrust upon them.
