London is a busy place and it can be a daunting experience trying to get across the city if you have never been there before. The underground system will seem like a maze, the buses are a mystery and as for the roads; where exactly is everyone going? The best advice for anyone visiting London for the first time is to do a little research before they arrive.
London has two main airports Gatwick and Heathrow and a couple of smaller airports that fall into the London airport category. If arriving at one or other of the two main airports, the visitor will find plenty of transport options available to them.
If you are unlucky enough to suffer an accident while visiting the city you will find that there are plenty of solicitors offering help to make a compensation claim. The Mall is one of the busiest tourist areas of the city and it is here that people often suffer a trip or a fall and will need help afterwards, with a compensation claim at The Mall.
London by Bus
London buses are famous the world over. They are the big two storey red things that you can buy a model of in any souvenir shop in the city and surprisingly beyond it. London buses travel not only through the main city centre but also into its suburbs and all the main areas are dotted with bus stops. There are maps of London bus routes and timetables available in all major hotels and at the airports. The London bus is a simple enough method of getting about but can get very crowded at certain times of day so try to avoid them at peak periods. It is at these times that buses become overcrowded and can create accidents.
The London underground is famous the world over as well, and the ground beneath the city is a labyrinth of tunnels. Known locally as the Tube, it can get you anywhere inside to city and to many areas outside. After a certain point the trains start to travel above ground and offer links to rail services to every part of the country. The major airports have rail links into the city that connect with the underground network so that the traveller can get anywhere in the inner city directly from the airport. Maps of the underground are found almost everywhere; make yourself familiar with your route before you set out and minimise the risk of an accident happening to you.
Compensation claim at The Mall – What to do if the unthinkable happens.
If you are unlucky enough to suffer an accident while getting about the city then there are plenty of options for making a compensation claim at The Mall. It is primarily an unpopulated street so you will not be able to walk into a solicitors straight after the event.

We can be contacted on our helpline phone numbers of 0800 689 0500 from a landline or 0333 500 0993 from a mobile.
