GENERAL TRAVEL & WEATHER INFO
Travelling with kids in London
Children under 11 travel free on most public transport services when accompanied by a fare-paying adult, or with a 5-10 Zip Oyster Photocard.
Children aged 11 to 15 years can travel free on buses and trams and at child rate on Tube, DLR and London Overground services, provided they have an 11-15 Zip Oyster photocard.
Find out more about the 11-15 Zip Oyster photocard on the Transport for London website.
If you're visiting London and don't have a photocard, ask for the Young Visitor discount to be set up on an Oyster card. This allows a child aged 11 to 15 to travel at half adult fare for 14 days.
Sixteen and 17-year-olds pay half the adult rate on Tube, DLR and London Overground journeys with a 16+ Oyster photocard.
