Travel cards on arrivalWhen travelling around London by public transport it is cheaper and more convenient to use a pre-paid Oyster card rather than buy an individual ticket for each journey you make. All participants will receive Oyster cards at registration, with some credit associated with it. You can add money to your card at any Underground station and from newsagents displaying the Oyster symbol. Oyster cards can also be bought from any London Underground station and the £3 deposit can be refunded if you return the card at the end of your visit to London. Alternatively, you can keep the card for a future visit. As long as you have enough money on the card you can travel on all buses and underground lines.

Help getting around LondonThe London transport network is extensive. This makes getting around this large city very easy, but it can make it very confusing for those who do not use the network on a daily basis. For those with a smart phone the modern world can provide help with getting around London. Transport for London has a free app which can provide people with information and directions using the full TFL network.
Details can be found here for Android phones, and here for iPhones.
There is also another useful free app called Citymapper which provides a similar service to the TFL app. In addition to the functions of the TFL app it will also tell you how long it will take you to walk, cycle or take a taxi along with the approximate cost of the journey. It will even advise you on which route will keep you out of the rain the longest if you encounter some typical British Summer weather.
Details can be found here for both Android phones and iPhones.
