Travelcard Zone 1


Travelcard Zone 1

Travelcard Zone 1 is the central zone of Transport for London's zonal system used for calculating co-ordinated inter-modal Travelcard fares within London. London is split into six (approximately concentric) zones for the purpose of determining the cost of London transport fares on the London Underground and Docklands Light Railway, but not journeys undertaken entirely by bus or tram, for which a city-wide flat fare applies.

The boundary of Zone 1 roughly corresponds to the route of the Underground's Circle Line and thus stations within the zone cover the West End, the Holborn district, Kensington, Paddington and the City of London. Old Street, Angel, Pimlico, Tower Gateway, Aldgate East and Euston, Vauxhall, Elephant & Castle, Borough, London Bridge, Earl's Court, Marylebone, Edgware Road, Lambeth North and Waterloo are in Zone 1 but not in or on the Circle Line. Every Tube line passes through or terminates in Zone 1.

The zone includes all of London's principal railway termini.

London Underground

There are a number of types of fares available for rail travellers in Zone 1: Cash single fares (paper tickets) and Oyster pay as you go; Oyster card can also hold Travelcards (for periods from a day upwards) at the regular Travelcard price. Oyster pay as you go is based on distance and time of travel whilst cash single fares only deal with the zones travelled. The fares for travelling to a zone from Zone 1 are as follows:

These fares do not always apply to National Rail train operating companies; check each company's ticket policies individually.

Underground stations within this zone are typically close together. For instance Covent Garden and Leicester Square tube stations are only an eighth of a mile apart, a network record.

The following stations are in Zone 1:
