The tube was a great way to get around and we had no issues. The only thing, I wish they were better vented. It was like you were in an oven especially during rush hour. You were sweating by the time you got to your stop.

The fastest way to get around in London is also the cheapest way. The tube is a great way to travel. You have to wait at the most a couple of minutes before your train will arrive. It's fairly clean andere there are almost no beggars.

I don't go to London very often but when I do, travelling on the Tube is an attraction in itself. Even the iconic names of the stations are a treat to hear. I have always been very impressed by the helpfulness of the staff working there (might help that we tend to travel off-peak, where there is a bit less... More

One thing I love about being a Londoner is our Tube system, it makes whizzing around the City so accessible and owning a car when you live within distance to the stations is unnecessary. Just wish it was 24 hours! The trains are so frequent - so much so any wait longer than 3 minutes I start grumbling! (Typical Londoner!)... More

It's wonderful to be in a city with a fairly consistent train system, but during a heatwave being in the underground on the train is not the greatest place to be. This whole experience would be made much comfortable if London sprung for air-conditioning in a few places, like on its trains and in its airport. Take a fan!

We purchased an Oyster Card, this saves you a lot of money. The tube trains are very quick and we have never had to wait more that 1 minute for a train.

I didn't used to be such a fan of the tubes, as we were always travelling with heavy cases in the past. on our last two visits to London I have become far more accustomed to the tube and made several journeys without luggage. Being tourists, we've not been traveling at really peak commuter times, although they are often still... More

You can save a lot of pounds when you buy a Oyster Card. It can be used on buses, DLR, and National Rail Services. I would recommend staying away from the following stations: Victoria, London Bridge, Baker St., King's Cross St. Pancras, Paddington, and Waterloo. These stations can be quite busy definitely during peak hrs.
