Cycling in London presents a compelling choice that combines cost-effectiveness and environmental friendliness, allowing individuals to discover the city with great convenience. However, it's essential to note that London roads can pose hazards, so we strongly recommend utilising designated cycle lanes whenever possible.

The London Underground rail network, commonly known as "the Tube," offers a convenient and efficient means of transportation to navigate central London. For those heading to ICMP, the campus is conveniently situated within walking distance from both Kilburn station (Jubilee Line) and Brondesbury station (London Overground). If you are using the tube on a regular basis it may be worthwhile buying a Travel card, these can be bought for a day, a week, a month or longer. If you are only using the tube occasionally you may wish to add travel value (cash) to an ‘Oyster card.’ Oyster fares are much cheaper than paying for individual tickets.

Walking is an exceptional mode of transportation in London, offering a multitude of advantages, including promoting a healthy lifestyle, being cost-free, and environmentally friendly. Although London is a sizable city, central London itself is relatively compact. Transport for London provides valuable advice on navigating the city on foot, including recommended walking routes and helpful tips for wayfinding. However, it's crucial to remember that cars drive on the left-hand side in the UK, and as with any major city, taking necessary precautions for pedestrian safety is essential.
