I am planning a visit to London for a couple of days. I will be staying at a hotel near Heathrow airport.
I am planning to use the underground as follows
- Upon my arrival, from terminal 5 to Hounslow West, where my hotel is situated in
- From Hounslow West to terminal 5, to meet a colleague
- Then from Hounslow West to somewhere in central London, to see Big Ben and London's Eye(perhaps I will do this route once more, so 2 in total)
- From central London to terminal 5
What's the best way to organize the tickets? Shall I buy a card? Is it better to use simple paper tickets?
In case it is better to buy a card, where to buy it from? Is there a possibility to get such a card in the airport? How much money should I load it with?
Note that I will be having Euros and not British Pounds, so I was wondering if Euros are accepted both for cards or paper tickets?
