Easy, fast, and reliable transportation to wherever you need to go! The Oyster card is definitely a plus as well.

What can one say? We were wide-eyed travelers from America when we first set foot in the Tube and within a day or two we were using it like life-long residents. We grabbed an Oyster Pass at Westminster station helped by a very nice employee and stocked up on rides. Then it was simply a matter of using the easy-to-navigate... More

We were impressed.. We are from an American city with NO subway. This was easy to use, much cleaner than the New York subway and I think even easier to use. People were helpful and don't be afraid to ask. Cheap and convenient to use.. Get a Tube pass. We had fun and got everywhere we wanted quick easy and... More

Love using the tube when I'm in London. So easy to get about. Even more so now, you can use a contactless debit card like an Oyster card, just swipe as you go through stations, in zones 1-4 all day the most it will charge per day is £6.95- bargain!

Offered a chance to review the Tube? What can be said? There's trains. Escalators. People. Tunnels. Some shops. Stations. Helpful Staff. The weather was nice tho - very warm all year round.

Clean, fast, easy to follow the lines. Lot's of help at the station if you need it. Large trains and plenty of seats or standing too. No eating or drinking. Great way to travel around the city. Get the pre-paid Oyster Travel Card for fast access. Remember to Mind The Gap.

The tube is the best thing about London. I have lived here for my whole life, and the tube makes London so accessible and genuinely makes London a better city. Get an oyster card when you get here - they only cost £5 and then you top them up with money, and tap in and out at each station to... More

Staying in Westminster

Neighborhood 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.
