London Waterloo is serviced by the Bakerloo Line, Jubilee Line, Waterloo and City and Northern Lines. These lines provide connections to all parts of the city; the underground network is a quick and reasonably priced way to get around the city.
Another great option is to bike to university.
The ride should take around 25 minutes and passes some of London’s most famous sights such as Big Ben, Buckingham Pal- ace, The London Eye and goes through Green and Hyde Parks making it one of the best ways to get to Imperial. Unfortunately, Xenia does not have bike storage for students.
You have two options for cycling:
- the Barclays\Santander (Boris) bike scheme. Santander Cycles is London’s self-service, bike-sharing scheme for short journeys. You can hire a bike from as little as £2. Simply go to any docking station with your bank card and touch the screen to get started. There is also an annual subscription costing around £90. There are plenty of docking stations around Waterloo so your sure to get a bike.
- cycle with your own bike. It’s possible to store them just outside Waterloo station where they have 24 hour CCTV.
Here are some useful apps if you are a cyclist:
