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...

Advice from the Transport office - buy the multi-day Oyster pass, but not the one attached to your London Pass, unless your stay is only as long as your pass if valid. We had a six-day London pass but were staying seven days, so traded our London-Pass-provided Oyster card for a week-long Oyster pass, and saved about 10 pounds each.... More

We travelled almost everywhere using this system and an Oyster card. It is brilliant when it works. Our first day in London there was a tube strike and London fell apart. It took us 2 hours to make what is normally a 15 minute journey as the traffic was a nightmare trying to use the bus system. However, the rest... More

I love using the tube in any major city. Once you understand how the system works it is so easy to get about quickly across London. Avoid the busiest lines at the busiest times if you don't like crowded areas.

Nothing like NYC subways - people are very polite, no pushing, no groping, no dirt, no litter. This subway runs on time - and if it is a minute or two behind you will hear a polite announcement. Easy to figure out with color coded lines - maps on the wall at numerous locations. Reasonably priced. Was so impressed. Now... More

A great and easy way to get around London. You can buy an oyster card for £3 to use then top up amount of train journeys or we just used our countactless payment card so fast and efficient it saves you money on journeys. Check it out on google.

The ideal transport for everyone who lives in the busy capital of the UK. Maps and sings everywhere, very fast and efficient. Colorful stations, people in a rush all the time, great for street photographers. I have some great captures of the underground life.

The Tube is both clean and efficient. If you can avoid peak rush hour times you will enjoy being whisked around this metropolis with ease. Station attendants are polite and helpful and purchasing a week pass is definitely a cost saver and gives you a plastic "tap and go" card unlike Paris that still uses a small paper ticket which...

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.
