Travelling in and around LondonHi you all :)
Upcoming summer I'll go, together with 3 other guides, to London with a bunch of teenagers (aged 15-18) from scouting. We'll be travelling by bus which will bring us to the center of London. After that we still have to get to the camping site named Chigwell Row near tubestation Grange Hill which is in zone 4. We'll be staying there for a total of 7 days in which we at least want to go two days towards London and we'll probably use the public transport to go to other places as well.
Since it is pretty hard to find out which is the least expensive way to travel in these 7 days for us, my question to you is whether you have any tips what would be the cheapest travelcard for us that will help us through these 7 days?
Hope you guys can help me out :)

Me and a couple of friends went to London for 6 days when we were around 17-18 years old, and for us the cheapest option was to buy a Travelcard: http://www.londontoolkit.com/briefing/travelcard.htm
A 1-4 zone card for 7 days would cost you £20.90 pp, if you pick the Off-Peak one (look for Peak & Off Peak Travel on the same page). I personally think that's pretty cheap :)

2Jiggel, welcome to Thorn Tree.
I suggest you post your question on the London forum of TripAdvisor, where questions like this are asked all the time, and you are more likely to get a quick and informative answer from locals. There may be group discounts available.
(No disrespect to dcrow, but reading your post - "went to London" (so you are not locals), and "when were were around 17-18 years old" with no indication of when that was, and things change - this is not likely to be the ultimate in definitive answers.)
