Car Seat Laws
The law requires all children traveling in the front or rear seat of any car to use the correct child car seat until they are either 135 cm in height or 12 years old (whichever they reach first). After this, they must use an adult seat belt.
Taxis can be expensive, but are a very useful way to navigate London. The London Underground (the “Tube”) runs throughout the city connecting the most remote areas to the most popular ones. And of course you have to ride on a double decker bus for the London experience. For more information on London transportation, visit this link.
Other Things To Know
It is customary to leave a tip of 10-15% of the bill when eating out. However, restaurants often add on a service charge (usually 12.5%), especially if you’re in a large group, so it’s worth checking your bill if you don’t want to tip twice.
London is a very safe place but as with any big city, it’s worth taking sensible precautions. Never leave your bag unattended, and report any unattended bags or items in public places. Try to avoid walking alone at night and keep to well-lit main roads.
