The London underground was very convenient for getting around snd relatively easy to navigate. Trains on most lines were very frequent but the trains (and stations/platforms) seemed to be busy through most of the day. Avoid peak hour travel as stations go from being very...More

Using Google maps/transit, it was easy to use the Underground to most places. Signage was easy to follow. Peak hours trains are super crowded as expected, but trains arrive one after the other, wait for a couple to pass and they thin out a little....More

As most undergrounds, not adapted to families with buggies. Also, very regularly, one or the other lines are down. I would definitely recommend the buses instead.

Quick, efficient and effective train services but suggest travelling out of peak hours, if possible, for more a comfortable journey. You might even get a seat.

We traveled alot through the subway on our three day visit. We would recommend getting an oyster card and loading it up. To see London try the commuter river service which was 7.60 pounds from the eye to Greenwich on the oyster card.

Oyster card is easy. U can refill in any station. Employees are extremely helpful with directions. Trains come every few minutes. Great way to get around London.

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
