It's incredible how good it can be and how bad can become. From rescue from traffic jams at the surface and from getting you on the top of your nerves with closures and people clammed around for commuters it's insane I loved it, thou. I like to see the so many different faces..

Getting around London is so easy by tube. WE arrived at Heathrow Terminal 5 and bought 2 single tickets to Kings Cross / St Pancras. Next day we went to the National Rail Ticket office and bought 2, 7 day zone 1-2 travel cards. Took a total of about 5 min to complete the transaction and we were off and... More

It was a good option through out our stay in London . You really save once you get the weekly ticket . Of course nothing to see once inside , and most of the station really old and tired . Will improve if some decorations and renew .

This is cheap and easy to use. If you have questions the help was friendly and courteous. Watch out because there are stairs between the lines that might be needed to climb, but if you have a problem (like with luggage) some friendly englishman. Will offer to help. Do it

The London Tube is among the most efficient modes of public transport I have ever used. After a few days of getting your bearings in the different stations, you start to gain confidence in your ability to navigate the Tube on your own. Buy an Oyster card for your travel around London. It's much easier and cheaper than buying tickets.... More

The London Underground was a pleasant surprise. We used it to get to/from Heathrow to our centrally located hotel & that saved a lot of money! Do it if you don't have a lot of luggage. We never took a cab in London, there is just no need, and you can feel pretty safe traveling everywhere on the Tube. The... More

Living in the north of Scotland where public transport seems to be a bit of a hit or miss depending where you live, we found the London Underground to be brilliant in terms of dependability and ease of use. The ticket machines are really easy to use and in the event of requiring to speak to a member of staff... More

I'm sure I'm not saying anything new here, but the tube is very efficient and easy to understand and travel. The colour coding makes it simple tyo see where you need to change trains. Probably the only downside was the ticketing system. We received our rail passes as part of the "London Pass" tickets, but when we first tried to... More
