While in London, we only travelled via foot and tube. The tubes are so much more efficient than say New York and they run much more frequently. Only one psuedo bad experience (punks), but eventless otherwise.

London tube remains time after time our favourite mode of London transport. Each station is unique, like the Sherlock Holmes tiles at Baker Street station, Mosaics at Tottenham Court Road, Art Deco style at Russell Square and many more. Amazing buskers at Waterloo. You never know what you will see. The trains are frequent & get you from A to... More

As always the tube is the only way to get around quickly but it's hot, busy and just a bit grubby. I love London with a passion and the underground is an institution...twin one finds nothing better than spending hours in the Transport Museum at Covent Garden...but I dread having to travel on the tube day in and day out....

Arriving from the US at Heathrow, I was directed underground to purchase an Oyster card. It is a prepaid plastic card which can be used on trains and buses. The attendant helped calculate how much I might place on the card for touring around the city. At the end of the stay, you can turn it in for a five... More

Had my first experience of travelling from Westfield City (Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park) to Waterloo on the London underground. This journey would have been a nightmare if it was not for the two policeman at Westfield and the young policewomen at Waterloo, who could not have been more helpful. There were NO staff on hand to ask for directions or... More

We got an oyster card before arriving in London and it was the best decision we made. Kids travel free, just make sure you go through the wide entrances/exits with your ticket so you can go through together otherwise you will have to pay again etc. And always remember to scan your card as you exit the tube or you...
