Tourists are usually very surprised about the London Tube fares when they use it for the time. We highly recommend not to buy a Single Journey Ticket, as this is way more expensive than paying for your ride with a contactless payment card. To give you an idea of the pricing difference, a ride between Harrow & Wealdstone station (Zone 5) and Piccadilly Circus (Zone 1) costs £3.10 (£4.70 during peak times) when you pay with an Oyster or a contactless payment card, and £5.90 if you buy a single journey ticket! The Oyster card is a smartcard on which you can buy credit for your journeys on the London Tube. You can find more information about the Oyster card on this TFL page.
