Geographically based map of the London Underground in Zone 1

Fare zone 1 is the central zone of Transport for London's zonal fare system used for calculating the price of tickets for travel on the London Underground, London Overground, Docklands Light Railway[1] and, since 2007, on National Rail services.[2] For most tickets travel through the zone is charged more expensively than the others.[3] The zone contains all of the central London districts, most of the major tourist attractions, major rail terminals, the whole of the City of London and the West End. It is about 6 miles (9.7 km) from west to east and 4 miles (6.4 km) from north to south.[4]

Background

Geographically based map of the London Underground in zone 1 with streets shown

London is split into six approximately concentric zones for the purpose of determining the cost of single fares and Travelcards. 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 London Underground line has stations in zone 1. It includes all of London's principal railway terminals. 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 zone originates from two central London zones that were created on 4 October 1981 named City and West End, in which flat fares applied. In 1983 the two zones were replaced with a new zone 1.[4]

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. As of December 2007, when the East London Line was closed for major reconstruction, 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:

Zone 1 Zone 2 Zone 3 Zone 4 Zone 5 Zone 6 Zone 7 Zone 8 Zone 9
Cash single fare £4 £5.50 £7
Oyster
Mon to Fri: 7am-7pm
£1.60 £3.50 £4.50 £5.50
Oyster
all other times
£1.60 £2 £3

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.
