Travelling to London is one of the most exciting times for any tourist or holidaymaker but it can also be quite stressful, particularly if you’ve never been before and you’re worried about finding your way around.
Luckily you won’t have to travel far when visiting the Park Grand Kensington London as it’s located close a number of Tube and train stations. To help make sure your trip to the city is as comfortable as possible, we’ve put together a few tips to help you stay calm and stress-free.
Whatever you decide to do in London and wherever you are travelling from, you will need a ticket on your journey. Whether you’re travelling on the train or you’re planning to see a West End musical, it’s always a good idea to pre-book your tickets. This will save a lot of time and will make sure that you aren’t caught out and have to miss out on a show or seat.
Bring some music
Travelling on public transport can be quite stressful sometimes, especially when the bus or carriage is full and there are a lot of people crammed into a small space. Having your smartphone or iPod with you is a great way to help you relax during your journey. Load all of your favourite songs on your device so you always have something to listen to on your travels.
Plan your route
It’s no secret that travelling around London can be confusing. Even residents that have lived in the city for years will sometimes lose their way and have to consult a map, so it’s no surprise that as a tourist, you might be slightly apprehensive about making the journey to our Park Grand Kensington accommodation for the first time. Thanks to things like Google Maps, it’s now possible to plan your exact route ahead of time. This will help you find your way and ensure that you’re on time and stress-free.
Avoid peak times
As one of the most densely populated cities in the country, London’s streets are usually always quite busy but during rush hour is when things can get really hectic. If you’re planning a day out in the city and you’ll be using the Tube or the Buses, try to avoid travelling during peak times in order to avoid the crowds. During the early morning and late afternoon rush hours, you will struggle to even get on a train or bus so plan your day around that and avoid the stress.
Go for a walk
If you find yourself getting too stressed and overwhelmed using public transport, it can sometimes help to just hop off the Tube or bus and travel on foot. There is plenty to see around every corner in London and walking gives you a great opportunity to make the most of it. Instead of travelling on the Underground, explore the streets on foot and take a walk in the sunshine.
