Whether you live in London and have tube strikes to deal with, or just can't bear the sight of that overcrowded bus again, there is a better way to get to work.

From a change of scenery to some extra exercise, why not try one of these alternative ways to get to the office?

1. Walking


If the thought of arriving to work sweaty from a cycle or a run is too much to bear, then walking is the perfect option.

Distance permitting it's time to start putting those commuter trainers to use.

It will improve fitness as well as giving you a chance to be alone with your thoughts, or your music before the stress of the day kicks off.

2. Cycling


Ever growing in popularity, this is the fastest, most environmentally friendly alternative to a car or bus.

Again, your waistline and heart will thank you (as will your bottom).

Comedy travel it is not.

More and more adults are picking up foot scooters to get on the move.

Perfect for all those who never mastered the skateboard.

4. Running


The classic workout, why not do your daily jog to work?

Finding time to workout is one of the hardest parts of getting fit, this way you've done it before you've even started your work day.

How efficient is that?

5. By boat


For those who do live by the Thames or another busy river, travelling by boat can be a lovely way to get to work.

The views, the speed, the chance to meet eligible city folk...
