Just loved experiencing the underground. It is a quick and reasonable way to get around and you see so many interesting people. A bit disorientating until you work out which direction you should be travelling in!

The underground is the way to travel if you want to get from A to B in the shortest time. It is much more expensive than the bus system. It is easy to use if you have a tube map and know which line you...More

Eventhough the Underground might not be the cheapest option it's by far the easiest and fastest. I would anytime choose the Underground over taxi when going around the city - becuase there's so many options!

Just like other places in Europe the Underground or Metro system in London is very easy to understand and follow. I originally thought that the 5 pounds of the Oyster card was then available to use it but it wasn't, also keep in mind to...More

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

Also found on Google that not only does the Tube run all night on New Year's Eve (maybe every night) but it is free from 11:45 pm to 4:30 am.
