Roaming cobblestoned streets, cozying up in a local pub, and taking in all the sites, exploring London is a magical experience. Whether you’re taking on London for a trip or getting out of your local borough bubble, using these must-have London apps will make discovering the city all the more effortless.
Without further ado here are 5 must-have apps to compliment your London exploring. Don’t forget to pop these on your phone to make your London experience a breeze.
My number one app for exploring of any kind, Citymapper is a godsend. A transit app with live updates and plenty of transit options London is yours to find in a click. From walking, cycling, driving, hopping on a bus, or taking the underground I use it every day without fail.
The live updates are especially helpful when navigating the tube. And bonus, it gives you the fastest routes and most cost-efficient options to get you any and everywhere in London in a breeze.
Oh, and it’s free.
The app lets you see how many bikes are at each station and book directly from your phone. Making it super helpful for bypassing lines and planning your London biking journey quickly.
Oyster cards are an essential part of daily London life and the TFL Oyster app is no exception. Having your Oyster card on the go allows you to top up virtually and skip those painstakingly long lines in the station. You can also use their contactless feature to pay with your card for your journey. Win-win.
There’s not much else to say except this is a must-have for your time in London. So be sure to have it handy.
London life will certainly leave you hungry. And with too many restaurants to count, this app cuts all the indecisiveness out of eating out in London.
Between the local reviews, promotions, and personalized recommendations it’ll help you navigate the restaurant scene like the foodie Londoner you are. Equally bad for my wallet, you also earn points towards a free meal every time you eat out. But, hey, it’s worth it.
I couldn’t end this post without talking about Visit London. The official tourist app is a must-have for your first visit to London. Perfect for pulling some city inspiration on the go Visit London has everything you need to have your sightseeing sorted, plus offline maps to navigate the city!
Outside of this lovely blog definitely give it a download to stay up to date on all the London happenings before your trip.
