I've lived west, South and North London and still the underground proves me right agin and again. It's u reliable and only serves itself. The sooner it reduces people at entrances and also the twins it will save money and reduce the problems. The people at the stations are lazy💩

Guess tube is better than bus, since we cannot read time sometimes. Guess you should get Oyster card at the station. It's a prepaid card, and you can put money and keep using when you are in London. My local friend told me it expires in a year.

Check ahead for line closures as your hotel conveniently located next to a tube station may not be so convenient. Line work after Embankment forced us to spend a lot of time getting around town. Of course our hotel was right on the Circle and District lines. Then there is the Oyster card. Mysteriously ran out of money after we... More

We took it a couple of times with relatives that live in London, but if you take a bit of time to study the routes, etc., it is well worth it. Get the pre-paid cards ahead of time.

I always use the tube in London as generally it is the quickest and easiest way to get around. A single ticket costs £4.80 but you can travel miles for this fare and it is way cheaper than a cab. The underground staff I have always found to be super helpful in buying the right ticket, finding which line or... More

The tube is the best way to get around London, we bought visitors Oyster cards on the Transport for London website ( http://www.tfl.gov.uk/fares-and-payments/oyster?cid=fs076 ) and top up when we arrive so we can jump on and off as the mood takes us. It helps if you have a tube map which you can pick up at the stations or download... More

The subway system here is quite large and overwhelming, but very organized and efficient. We left our bag on the train with all the commotion of people, and trying to file a report and trace it back was next to impossible. The lost and found never seems to have anyone on the other line. That would have had to be... More

I wonder how this happen. I keep asking myself when and how this tube was constructed? While ground is soo busy with lot of cabs, buses, cycles etc the under ground is much more busy with the tub. I join the central line at Oxford circus to Epping forest though the tube make a lot of noise sometimes, it was... More

The tube is a great way to travel,stops every 5-8 min. quick stops, buy daily or weekly ticket for best price. Clean cars, easy to manage your travel time.
