=== Get an Oyster card ===
Not having an Oyster card is a tax on tourists.  A zone 1 single costs £4 without a card, but only £1.80 with one.  The amount you pay is capped at the price of an equivalent travelcard, so unless you get one with your rail ticket, it's guaranteed to save you money.
A card is a £5 deposit and doesn't expire.  You can also use it to open [[Door control system|our door]] if you're a member.

=== Oxford ===
Get the Oxford Tube from the High St to Victoria Station.  It's slightly cheaper than the train, and includes free Wifi and power sockets at your seat.
Walk to Victoria station for the <span class="tube dis">District</span> line, and change at Whitechapel for Hoxton. Alternatively, get the <span class="tube vic">Victoria</span> line to Highbury & Islington, and approach from the north.  Both of these will take you on the new <span class="tube ovg">East London</span> line to directly outside the space.
