Visiting London cannot be done without the Underground. Easy to use and great value for money. Stopping at all major tourist attractions. However, not disabled friendly. I have never seen a person in a wheelchair use the underground.

I would do short of anything to magically move this efficient and history saturated system to Seattle. One line in particular seemed to be a giant, people eating caterpillar due to the divider-less card. Crazy busy at times. Almost abandoned and silent at others. Take it everywhere and pop up like a groundhog to explore above ground. Why does no... More

The engineering of the underground system is worth understanding. An engineering over 100 years and which still meets the modern day traffic. The planning for this system is awesome. Maybe i am looking from an engineers point of view

I go to London at least once a year and keep my own oyster card that I reload as needed. I put the charges on my credit card so I have coverage for any accidents on public transport When I arrive in London I jump on the Piccadilly Line into town and I'm on my way to new adventures. I... More

It's the underground.. Don't expect faultless service.. Things stop, trains breakdown, staff go on strike.. Welcome to London

A wonderful daily attraction, that I suffer daily. The unmanned ticket offices, drunken gangs and sticky seats are a constant joy. The magical realism that is the arrival notice is a certain win for stressed travellers

Though it might get very crowded on the peak times, meaning in the morning for a couple of hours both before 9.30 and in the evening after 5.00pm, London Underground is a very complex network of trains, but very easy to understand how the connections work and how to get from point A to point B on the shortest route...

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.
