=== 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 £1.90 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 [http://www.oxfordtube.com Oxford Tube] from the High St to Victoria Station.  It's slightly cheaper than the train (unless you're buying a couple of weeks in advance), 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.
