London Transport Advice Required

Will be London for a couple of days with the family next week. I have to get to Gatwick also for a flight. I am staying in central London. Questions /tip/recommendations:

What kind of underground pass should I obtain?

Does the pass include Gatwick Express? If not how should I ship 4 of us to Gatwick?

Where is the best sushi resturant. I hear there is one in the basement of a fashion store (do not know the name)

Thanks in advance!!

London travel telephone number 02072221234 used them plenty of times myself they will sort you out no worries mate

Don't get the gateick express mate, get the local trains from Victoria, I think anyone that goes to Brighton Stops at Gatwick it's cheaper but takes a little longer

Quick tip - give your journey about twice the time it should take - the tubes are shocking sometimes. You plan your route and then find out about signal failures, closed stations and delays.

What kind of underground pass should I obtain? - Get Oyster cards all round, then you can load them up with money for pay-as-you go, and depending on how many journeys are make they will stop deducting money if you make more journeys than the cost of a day travelcard.

Does the pass include Gatwick Express? If not how should I ship 4 of us to Gatwick? - No. Don't get the Gatwick Express. It is hardly any faster than the normal trains to Gatwick, but costs more.

Where is the best sushi resturant. I hear there is one in the basement of a fashion store (do not know the name) - A matter of opinion, of course, but I would say that in the centre it is Miyama, in Mayfair. It is just around the corner from the Japanese embassy, and over half the customers were japanese when I went there, which is usually a good sign.
