The easiest way to plan your travel in London is to use the Transport for London (TfL) Journey planner. It allows you to plan routes between stations, places of interest and postcodes. And it allows you to specify preferences for modes of transport (including walking and cycling) and accessibility requirements (such as step-free transport).
The Tube & Train is usually the fastest way to travel around Greater London and its suburban zones. The cheapest and easiest way to travel on public transport in and around London is to use a contactless payment card (issued by many banks) or an Oyster (pre-pay) card. Paying for a paper ticket can be several times more expensive than using these methods.
Buses in London are now entirely cash-free, so use of a contactless card, and Oyster card, or a previously purchased paper travel-card is necessary.
