Found it extremely efficient. As tourists it's a very nice experience. Surprisingly clean cars, friendly service, has only improved with time. The system really works, you can't get lost, everything is well marked and yes, working. The Oyster system works very well too, and you can easily charge it and even get a quick refund. It's rather impressive to find... More

Sometimes I was a little confused on which way to go and always had to ask a local which one I should get on. Once I was on the right one, it was easy to follow. The big problem is lots of steps, lots of stops, but that could be good. I was hoping for an express one that could... More

Whenever we visit London we always have our map of the underground and Oyster cards with us. We walk a lot in the city but when we are tired, time is short or we are heading somewhere a little to far to walk, we plan a route on the underground and off we go. Although we only visit London for... More

The tube is way too confusing to use and overly complicated. Further the trains are so old and rail network requires significant investment.

The London Underground is inexpensive and I find it to be the fastest and most convenient means of transportation in London. It's almost idiot proof, and with the many stations, you can get virtually anywhere without adding 45 min of walking to your trip. Make sure to check out Kings Cross station, just because it's an amazing & beautiful station... More

Tube is a convenient, relatively easy, and cheap way to travel like a local. Fast paced, sometimes crowded, but the only real way to get around affordably. Get an oyster card and load it up, super easy to use. If you download an app called Citymapper you'll be able to navigate to your destination without any effort.

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.
