If you are using public transport, the easiest way to get to The Grange Country House is via the Tube on the Metropolitan Line to Northwood (HA6 2XL). There are tube maps all around London and you can find them at every Tube station. Alternatively you can go to www.tfl.gov.uk to plan your route online. Plan your journey
Depending on where you stay we would recommend that you either buy an off peak pay-as-you-go Oyster Card, or a Travel Card. The Travel Card is the most convenient one-day option and gives you the ability to use all public transport.
A Travel Card is a ticket which covers various zones in London. You pay for the ticket once and then you can use all public transport (Bus, Tube, Overground, etc.) For more information about prices and zones please go to TFL's ticket information. We would recommend to buy the Day Off-peak Travel Card for Zones 1-6 for around £8.00
If you are planning on spending a few days in London, we would recommend purchasing an 'Oyster' card (£5.00 in 2011). These are available at any tube station and basically work as a 'pay as you go' system. Each time you use the card, money will be deducted and you can top up as little or as often as you like. The advantage with the Oyster card is that currently it is the cheapest option to travel with reduced costs per journey, and once you have spent the equivalent of a Travel Card, the oyster 'caps' and no more money will be deducted. For more information on the oyster card visit TFL's website. Oyster cards can be used on all of London's public transport system - tube trains, rail trains and buses, so it's also very convenient to have a 'one-ticket-does-all' system.
