London is a major international air transport hub, with five international airports. It is well served by rail and road transportation, with a new international rail terminal recently opened at St Pancras, which is now the main Eurostar terminal. The Strand Campus is within easy walking distance of six or seven underground stations, with Temple the closest. A number of bus routes go past the front entrance. Many of the main cultural attractions are within walking distance of the campus. All this means that there are many options for getting to and from London, and moving around within the city.
Because of the number of flights to and from London, fares tend to be as low as they come, and transport costs within London are not exceptionally high: a 7-day travel card on the Underground system costs a little under 25 GBP, while a 7-day bus pass is 13 GBP. You may also want to consider getting an Oyster card for the duration of your stay. These can be ordered online in advance or purchased from an Underground station when you arrive.
