One of the best ways to make the most of your time in London is to use the tube to get from A to B. No matter which of our hotels you choose to stay at, you’ll find they are all nearby to one of the city’s major tube stations. Today we’re going to discover what the London tube zones are and how they will impact the cost of your journey.

What are the London Tube Zones?

Before riding the tube for the first time, it’s important to understand how the tube zones work. The city is divided into nine different zones. Zone 1 is located in the centre of the city, whereas Zone 9 is the furthest away from the city centre. These zones were devised so that Transport for London can calculate how far you are travelling and the price you need to pay for each journey. The distance that you travel will impact your price, so the more zones you cover, the higher the cost of your journey. If you start or end your journey on a station which is on the edge of the zone, you’ll typically pay the lower journey price.
