"Driving" London Tourist Trap Tip by kcbrit

London Tourist Traps: 435 reviews and 348 photos

Do Not Drive in this city. Not only is it the worst sign posted place I have ever been to, if you wander into the central zone you have to pay a 5 pound fee. I was so disgusted after getting lost for two hours I could have got out of the rental car and left it in the street. And I was using a map from Mapquest too! Luckily I found a taxi driver who gave me good directions.

Unique Suggestions: Get a map and study it closely before you leave. I have used Mapquest with great success before but without double checking the directions I was headed for disaster.

Fun Alternatives: Take the train or underground.
