Plan your itinerary using websites

Look for information about the cities and towns you plan to visit. For example if you are visiting London visit the Visit London website - the official guide to London.
The main categories on this website include Discover London, Things To Do, Where To Stay, Traveller Information and Special Offers.
The Traveller Information section includes information about the airports, public transport, the London buses, the Visitor Oyster card - how it works and how to obtain one - and walking in London.

The Discover London section includes a virtual exhibition and a series of video guides as well as highlights of London and information about different sections of London.
Similar websites exist for most major cities. Check also for tourism websites for specific countries.

If you are travelling to England it may be useful to visit the UK National Trust  website and the website of English Heritage if you plan to visit a number of historic houses and sites. It can be economical to take out a membership of the Australian National Trust before leaving Australia if visiting National Trust sites is part of the itinerary as there are reciprocal arrangements.
