Easy way to get around city, avoid crowded car roads and take the metro/train or as said in England the "Tube". You can go anywhere just change lines and directions; buy the whole day unlimited pass so you can just transfer and not spend more...More

We love using the tube. Our kids (9,11 & 15) get so excited about it! Never found a problem, apart from the very occasional station closure which just means walking a little further to the next one. We went for a few days. Got hubby...More

Typically good service from London Underground. Trains are clean, frequent and fast. Some might be old and noisy but they still do the job you need to. Unlike at home where you wait 15-30 mins between trains, these are generally coming every 2-3 mins!

The London Underground continues to serve its purpose. The journey from Paddington to Canning Town was efficient and fast with the Jubilee and Circle line, and a good way to get across the city. The DLR ( Docklands Light Railway ) is an outstanding railway,...More

While the map looks daunting the underground really is easy to navigate. Mind the Gap and enjoy! It gets you everywhere! The downside - the stairs for people with mobility issues.

It's clean, safe, inexpensive, and at times the fastest way to travel in London. London traffic in the morning and afternoon can be very bad, but the subway avoids it. They have clear and understandable sign to help you get around. If u use google...More

Easy way to get around the city if you can't walk. We bought a day pass and got on and off several times.

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

It depends on the card, some do. Best to obtain a Oyster card on arrival from any ticket hall station or stores advertising the symbol Oyster. If you use it within the hour then it's free for that journey. Hope this is... More
