It can be used on London Underground, DLR, buses, etc. It costs £3 but it is refundable. You could buy it at your arrival in UK. Photo is not necessary. There is also available a special visitor’s OYSTER travel card at £2.
Suggested arrival routes from London airports
These suggestions are simple routes, not necessarily the cheapest or fastest routes. For further information please also check:
Alternative route (cheaper): From Heathrow, take the London Underground: Piccadilly Line Eastbound to Holborn (pronounced "hoe-burn"). Change to the Central Line, and travel Eastbound to Mile End, as above. Allow up to 1 1/2 hour total travel time.
Alternative route: From Heathrow take the Heathrow Express to Paddington as above, and then take the Hammersmith and City Line Eastbound directly to Mile End. To get to the Hammersmith and City Line at Paddington, walk along the platform to the footbridge that is, going away from the main concourse, then follow the signs to platforms. Note that as there is no escalator, it will be necessary to walk up and down about 20 steps to get to the platform.
Occasionally the Hammersmith and City Line may have long gaps (10 mins or longer) between trains. If you don't want to wait at Liverpool Street Station, you can go instead to the Central Line and travel to Mile End station.
