    Used the London Underground and not the best of experiences as there was disruption to some of the lines we wanted to use, but the work has to be done sometime. Usually a frequent and fab service

    This was a must do my work collegues and I were on a team building day and had just climbed up the O2 and as this was near we just did it. Excellent views of london and a quick tap of your oyster or card a cheap quick thrill ride across the sky 😀 if you haven't done it just fo it for the experience.

    A hub for transfer anywhere in Europe. You can buy tickets in advance or take a chance and buy at the station, chances are you will make it as there are trains leaving everywhere hourly.

    4 rides at 1.65 pounds each with the Oyster card then you can ride the rest of the day for 'free'. Also you can sit, relax and enjoy the view.

    Visited on Wednesday 23rd June 2021 As part of a day trip to London. Woolwich Ferry. It was still free and my first time on it since I went on it as part of the circular cycle around East London back in 2012. I exited the King George V DLR Station and walked the rather decrepit streets the short distance to the Woolwich Ferry. You can queue with your vehicle or walk under the Thames using the foot tunnel. I chose to queue and as there was only 1 of the 2 Ferrys in operation the time to wait was circa 20-30 mins. Once the Ferry was on my side, you could access the ferry and either stand in the open or the covered side seating area. The ferry takes about 10 mins to empty its vehicle and people contents and be refilled. The crossing takes about 10 mins and provides a free view down the Thames. Once in Woolwich, it is a similarly poor/decrepit area of now South London. Either way, unless you have a reason to use this free ferry there is little value to doing so.

    I regularly debate with my wife about the British rail system and how it’s repeatedly rubbish service encourages me to drive their cars which are cheaper, more comfortable and guaranteed to have a seat. Here I am stood packed on a train from London to Poole crammed in like a pack animal. The good news is that I’ve just been told the service has a bus replacement route running from Southampton airport parkway. If the UK is serious about reducing emissions and vehicle usage we need to get an organisation in who actually know what they’re doing. Light years behind the level of service you get in Europe… SWR sort it out!

    The train it’s self is comfortable however it is never really on time, it is always late.
    And sometimes cancelled. The longer distance trains are much better but can sometime the punctuality.

    Russell Square Tube station is in Central London on the Picadilly Line. There are trains running through Central London from Heathrow Airport, Uxbridge, Cockfosters and Leicester Square is only a couple of stops away with Covent Garden and Picadilly Circus also nearby.

    The station does not have any escalators. Although there are lifts there is sadly no step free access as there are steps from the platform to the lifts.

    The station is close to Russell Square which is a nice area to sit in good weather and there are quite a number of hotels nearby.

    When I visited I did not encounter any staff but I am sure they were available if necessary.

    The seats on Thameslink trains have so little padding, by the end of a journey it feels as if you've been repeatedly kicked up the backside. They also have an annoying announcement where a man says "If you see somethink suspicious..." Somethink! How hard is it to say a word properly?

    Perhaps my least favourite Train station in London.
    Even getting there from the Tube feels unsafe.
    Considering how busy it is & the well healed people that must use it, it's pretty shabby.
    Even Peterborough Station is nicer!

    As always I enjoyed using TFL subway and buses during my 6 day visit to London. Appreciated their efforts to get passengers to wear masks. Most folk seemed to wear them on buses but fewer on underground.

    Nice way to link the Tates. At busy times best not to tap on to pay until the boat arrives and you know it is not full.
    Not great on boarding advice - people not really told what to do unless they did it wrong, however it is pretty obvious that you need to stand well back until invited to board!
    Great way to see London from the water.
