This is one of the world's oldest underground public train service. It works quite simply. Tickets per ride are not cheap, but the trains (most of the time) are efficient, run on time and have excellent coverage for the most part of London. The tube is the most convenient means of transport to get around London with. With renovations taking... More

After spending the weekend in London I can safely say the underground is fantastic a quick and easy way to get about. It's very simple to follow the routes. We brought an Oyster card which is like a pay as you go which was ideal for us and we can just top it up when we go to London next... More

I guess this is just one of those things you have to do when visiting London. There's not much to say other than it's an underground train service that runs flawlessly, constantly, very often, everywhere and is insanely efficient. Forget the bus - get the tube.

I stayed in London for five days and with a 7-day, 2 zone transportation card (oyster) managed to visit everything. It includes bus and tube. It's a lot cheaper than paying singles and allows you as a tourist to move quickly without queueing each time to buy tickets. You can check prices at the web prior to your arrival.

I thought the train system was great. You really don't even need to plan your trip as the trains run so often you can just show up at the station and catch one in just a few minutes. You do need to "mind the gap" between the train and the platform (not sure why they didn't get trains that fit... More

It can be overwhelming the first few times you use the tube with people running around and the map with a million lines. It gets easier to navigate after a few uses. If you are traveling a lot in one day/week you can get the day/week pass that is cheaper than paying per time. If you are staying longer, buy... More

Never a stressful experience. A lot of people think it's confusing but if you do your research its a piece of cake! Always hot and stuffy but what do you expect it's the London Underground!

The tube stations in London are cheap, efficient and very fast! I dispose the escalators especially when stepping on to go down, they are quick, steep and easy to fall down! I haven't had any problems other than the tube themselves could always do with a clean, take antibacterial hand gel and try not to hold on to anything with... More

We had a seven day travel pass costing approx 38 GBP for travel within zone 1-3 where most of the attractions are situated. We could easily see most of them without paying any additional charges. Only you have to download the apps on your mobile and you could easily find your way around. The only problem is that changing different... More
