There are not a lot of bargains in London, lol, but this is surely one of them. It is a bit daunting at first but once you get the hang of it this is the only way to get around London. Buy a day pass (about 11 Pounds) and you can ride endlessly around the city. I swear I never... More

London Underground may be the oldest subway system in the world, but compared to newer systems, it more than holds its own even today. Every time I visit London, I find it mostly a pleasure to zip around town using the extensive Tube network. - Paying the Fare - One reason why I won't give the Tube a full 5... More

We took the kids on the underground a ton of times as we traveled around London. The system is amazingly efficient way to get basically anywhere in the city. It's also super memorable as the tunnels are deep and winding. This is a not to be missed experience, we will remember this as much as the iconic London sights. One... More

I have went to quite a few big cities and this is by far the best. It makes traveling easy and saves you money and from walking tons. I bought an Oyster card pass for my week stay and it was very convenient - just make sure you have it at all times! The maps of all the tube lines... More

This is the way to get around London! I did purchase a tube map online from Amazon before I left and I found that the free leaflets that they have at the stations were actually more accurate and easier to read and use. We purchased something called the "Oyster" card where you can basically have one card and add money... More

I love the London Underground. It is by far the best way to travel around London. Trains are on time, and are quite spacious. Staff there on hand if you need help and the stations are always clean. For me, the Underground is one of the best bits of the holiday! I would recommend you buy an Oyster card.

The Tube (London's Subway) is, by far, the best way to travel in London. Should you be there for a week, I suggest you buy a one week pass to get access to the subway and the trains. Trains are the best way to access London suburbs in a comfortable and efficient manner. Not cheap though ... Around 120 GBP... More

Basically clean and easy to navigate. Take your time and read the signs. The central line is ridiculous in terms of volume of riders so if you can plan around the central line, do so.
