I was apprehensive at first but within a hour or two of using the Tube, I was a pro at t. The Tube is surprisingly easy to use and clean. I have only used one other subway system and that was Paris. The Tube mad me feel safe at all times. Tip: The Tube runs from Heathrow to London centre,... More

It was the biggest cleanest tube rail service I had ever. The map available on net for the tube rail is itself so confusing When I entered the rail services I was just bewildered at how they really manage the entire fleet..4 different rail routes each marked with a color and so many trains and that too quite cheap.. really...

I have never had to use the tube in rush hour. I know people who use it every day in rush hour and believe the tube is the way the Lord punishes man for all his sins. As a casual tourist I do enjoy the tube - it takes you where you want to go fast and, well, not cheap.... More

For a city as huge as London, it's amazing how easy it is to use this system and get around the city. I was there for only a couple of days before I had it completely figured out

The tube is a good way to get around london, but it is small and cramped inside. Some stationdcare so packed you cant get on the tube. Peak hours cost more and the hours are often too crowded. Still I prefer to take the tube over other transport options.

I love the tube system. The Londoners complain about it but I love it. Stayed near Victoria which was a master stroke. Gatwick express stops there and central Line and northern line also. Would love to get the book with the histor of it. Not cheap but london is so big.

Really good. Definitely the best way to get around London fast. However, some stations have large entry doors for disabled access followed by narrow, steep staircases. Also, the price seems to go up every time we visit.

Nice to see the famous London tube, but quite noisy. Many lines take you to where you want with stations everywhere throughout London. Cheaper fares available with the oyster card.

Obviously it's pretty cramped at peak times, but the rest of the day, it's a pleasure to travel on the tube. Frequent trains that get you to all of the sites!

Staying in Soho

Neighborhood Profile
Soho
The go-to district for a good time in London, Soho hosts a wealth of world-class theatres and a compelling lineup of cafes, restaurants, pubs, bars, and clubs. At Soho's core is London's original Red Light District and the epicenter of the LGBT scene – and thus the city's hottest nightlife. For shopping enthusiasts, Soho is not only the home of London's greatest concentration of boutique shops, but also the most strategic place to set off on a tour of the world's most celebrated department stores. In the southern part of the neighborhood lies Chinatown, with its multitude of delicious and affordable restaurants. Closer to the Thames, Chinatown's narrow and teeming lantern-lit lanes spill onto the expansive hub of glitzy Leicester Square.
