In London you can reach almost everywhere by going underground, the underground tube system is efficient, clean, fast and a reliable service, which is very organised in modern day tubes. The staff are always on hand to explain and help and always friendly. So when in London along with usual suspects of London attractions, the underground should be on the... More

The tube is sometimes smelly, often crowded, full of narrow twisted internal passages - yet it is the ultimate mode of transportation in London. Love it or hate it, when you need to traverse an enormous city, you will be fastest on the tube (I include the DLR here, too). Apart from taking you from A to B and all... More

We went to London to see a show and decided to stay overnight so travelled from Birmingham to London Euston. We then had to find our way to the Bayswater hotel in Westminster. It was a nightmare for us as soon as we hit the tube station ! Everyone was pushing and running past you on the escalator and for... More

Maybe the most pricey public transportation in the world but with a massive city with streets heaving with the weight of traffic, there's no faster way to travel in London

It is only the second time using the tube but I can only say that if travelling around London I can say this comes highly recommended If you have any difficulties there is always a member of staff to help you i would recommend purchasing a oyster card for convenience

I love traveling on the tube!! It is actually easy to do. You can buy tickets before you get on, but if you are coming to stay any length of time in London, get your Oyster card before you leave home. That way if you do make a mistake on the tube or buses you aren't charged some outrageous amount.... More

My wife and I spent 3 days travelling around London solely on the Tube, using our contactless AMEX cards. When our bank statement arrived it showed some serious overcharging ... on quite a few occasions our VISA cards had been read at the same time as the AMEX cards. Went into the Tfl website and contacted them - they got... More

We were glad that our relative knew her way round the underground system because it's quite complicated to follow.

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.
