The London underground is a disgrace to all concerned, its filthy, it stinks and only the brave would pay 30 pence to use the stinking toilets throughout the system. Its hard to see what the cleaning contractors do all day but clean they do not. A great system gone to ruin.

So impressed by the efficiency, cleanliness, and easy of travel on the underground. The trains run frequently and are well marked. Most were quite modern announcing the next stop very clearly. There was a mixture of escalators and stairs, but we did see some elevators so I think they are available if you know where to look. We bought an... More

Best Public Transportation I have ever been on - Not only is it on time and has a lot of frequency and covers the entire city it is also very clean

Best way to get around the city but so crowded it's hard to get on and off the trains. Can be a bit confusing but there are maps everywhere

What a fabulous mode of transportation! I wish all Major cities in the US were as easy to navigate! King's Cross was a little intimidating the first time but after that it was a breeze! Be sure to visit platform 9 3/4 while you are at King's Cross!

This underground system is terrific. If you're from outside England, but wish to avail yourself of excellent low cost transportation in an expensive city the Underground is perfect for you. This is a very very old system so not every tube stop is wheelchair accessible. Having said this, I'm in my late 60s and use the system regularly, even while... More

Staying in Westminster

Neighbourhood Profile
Westminster
If you only had an afternoon to experience London on a grand scale, Westminster would be a wise place to start. The ornate Houses of Parliament and Westminster Abbey sit adjacent at a corner of Parliament Square, and a short stroll along The Mall leads to Buckingham Palace. Trafalgar Square and Nelson's Column are just up the road as well. As captivating as the architecture is, the wonders of Mother Nature are highlights of the area too. St James's Park (arguably London's loveliest), the expansive Green Park, and pedestrian friendly tree lined paths along the river showcase the exquisite manicure provided by English gardeners. Just beyond the landmarks and the gorgeous outdoor spaces, quiet residential squares and age old local pubs offer a more subdued take on this global seat of power in the heart of London.
