    possibly the tube, not too sure how far it is to walk though.
    Whenever i feel like exercise, I lie down until the feeling passes.

    Asim sir... use the London Underground The quickest way to go!

    From Victoria Underground Station
    Take the District Line towards Richmond
    or District Line towards Ealing Broadway
    or District Line towards Wimbledon

    Get off at Earl's Court

    From Earl's Court Underground Station
    Take the District Line towards Kensington (Olympia)


    Arrive at Kensington (Olympia) Underground Station

    buy a one day travelcard for a few quid then take the tube/bus as much as you like mate. Central London is very easy to get around by public transport.

    I hear in the big cities they have these new horseless carriages. They're like a big metal box with these round things, you get inside it and you can move around. Brilliant!

    If you were coming from leeds, you could have got National Express train to Kings Cross with Tube/buses incl.

    Travel cards can be purchased from the Underground Stations and some newsagents.

    But yeh best/fastest/cheapest option is train. Remember a one day travelcard!

    When you buy your ticket, ask for a 1 day travel card.
    Olympia only takes 10mions by tube from Victoria.
