About me

Hi! Welcome to Complete City Guides!

Complete City Guides mascot logo

My name is Patrick, I'm originally from Sydney (Australia) but grew up in England (my second home) - and I love exploring cities (and writing about it!)

I work online in marketing, which gives me the opportunity to travel around the world full time.

So while I am away, I keep this blog updated with full travel info. I tend to stay in a city for a few months at a time, to really get to know it - then I write guides on it.

Getting around London - a quick primer to their Underground tube

London tube underground
  • The underground is great, you can quickly and easily get anywhere within London. Get a tube map on your phone to make navigating the map a bit easier.
  • If you use a visa card (contactless) to swipe through the barriers. You will get charged at the end of the day - there is a maximum it'll charge you. You can also just buy normal tickets, or buy an Oyster card and top it up with credit. Also works with Apple Pay. Be aware of foreign transaction fees though, if you don't have a UK card. Details on contactless, details about Oyster.
  • The same system works on busses - in fact you can't buy a ticket from the driver, you have to have an Oyster card or use your debit card.

  • Stick to the right hand side of the escalators. The left side is used by people who want to walk up/down them.
  • Avoid peak times (when office workers are going to work (7-9am) or returning home (5-6pm) as the tube will be very busy
  • The London Map might look confusing at first, but it is very simple.
  • Watch a video on Youtube about how to use the underground.
