Transportation in London
London has five airports: London City Airport, Luton, Stansted, London Gatwick and Heathrow. When in the city, the fastest way to get around is by subway (the London Underground, or ‘tube’), but you can also use the train or bus. We recommend you take a popular black cab or the red double-decker buses at least once, so familiar from TV series and movies.
