DOs & DON’Ts

LOCAL ETIQUETTE
  • Do say “Please” and “Thank you” by habit. Not saying this is considered the ultimate form of rudeness.
  • Don’t ever jump queues. Seriously, don’t do it.
  • Do not speak loudly in public transport. Londoners consider this the height of rowdiness.
  • Do stand on the right side of the escalator to allow people to pass you.
 
SAFETY
  • Pickpockets are everywhere – so best to always watch out for your belongings and carry valuables in a belt pouch.
GOOD TO KNOW
  • Do have your ticket ready when approaching the barrier in the London Underground. There’s nothing Londoners dislike more than someone fumbling around for their Oyster card and holding up people behind them.
  • Do not walk in the middle of the pavement. If you need to speak to a friend, consult a map, or take a photo, step aside so as not to be a hindrance to others.
  • May be advisable to a carry a visiting card laminated color copy (first and last page pasted back to back) of your passport. Works as ID proof in most places
