Cycling

Cycling is a lot speedier than walking, which is why it is a great method of transport around London. The lightweight frame of a bicycle means that you can dodge about the busy London scene with ease.

Scooter

People often mistake scooters for a child’s toy but a new trend that has come about is the adult kick scooter. Again you can travel at a much faster pace but with a scooter you have access to the pavement making it a lot safer for you.

For a more retro way to get around why not take a skateboard. You can simply hop on and off at your pleasure and weaving around the walking traffic is so much easier.
