This is a perfect way to get around the city, especially in January with rain and cold weather. So easy to navigate.

Very efficient but noisy and expensive. Use the one-day card over 12 GBP. but valid for the night service.

Anyone visiting London would be silly to avoid using any of the underground systems. It got my boyfriend and I all over London to many different locations this weekend with no hassles. Communication is clear, the maps are fairly easy to use and you can use your 'chip and pin' for quickness.

Will get you pretty much everywhere in downtown london or very close. Best to plan your route and have a map nearby in case of a change of plans. Using an oyster card is best to get around or if you have a UK debt card you can use that to get through the barriers.

There are frequent trains so dont panic if you miss one. They enter the station VERY fast so make sure you stand well back from the edge of the platform. Avoid peak hour travel at all costs, especially if you dont like crowds. We were caught on a train at peak hour and people just kept getting on - even... More

Got a map of the underground at the airport and an oyster card for 5 pounds. You charge the card and travel much easier and cheaper via underground. Sometimes it gets busy, but definitely made life easier going around to most tourist and local places. Needed to use a cab only once in 10 days, and only because it was... More

Today I was in the office late....AGAIN. Before going out home I checked if there were delays, but everything seemed working pretty well. Never hope that it will last the whole duration of your commuting, though! In fact, once arrived at Euston to change for the Victoria...suprise! Victoria line had major delays, so we had been suggested to use the... More

The tube is rather fast and gets you were your going. Unfortunately it is very warm in there. Make sure you have water or something. It also smells due to the fumes of diesel that cannot be helped. I personally struggled with the stairs and the push and push of people

Use a UK contactless payment card or buy an Oyster card on arrival. Easy tap and off system. Wonderful way to explore the city with regular services, but don't forget to use the buses for a better view. Thanks for the vote if you found this review helpful.

Yes the Tube is safe, clean, fast and convenient to nearly everywhere you might want to go. But you'd miss so much of London if you don't walk through its lovely neighborhoods.

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.
