Have used the underground for many years now. Currently being updated as it dates back to Victorian times. Extensive, quick, frequent and easy to follow routes but can be daunting at first. Various ways to pay, cash, contact less and Oyster card. If travelling into London, it may be possible to get an all-in-one train and underground ticket at great... More

When in a London where possible we use the tube coming into the main stations by train it is easy then to get a forward tube to anywhere you wish to go. It can be very busy at certain times of day,and a little intimidating if you are not an experienced traveller.

London's underground is amazing compared to most. Trains are generally always on time and running smoothly and trains come every 2 to 5 minutes in zones 1 and 2. Always clean and safe. Can get super busy but it is london so its to be expected.

If you are in London the Underground or the Tube is a must. Must because it takes you where you want to go and you get to pass classical stops you might want to go to next time.

Not much to say on The London tube, except that still today it is totally amazing as far as efficiency, regularity, timeliness and zone coverage are concerned. You can really get anywhere in short time. It is expensive as usual, but with the one and a million things you have to do and see in London, you cannot afford to... More

If you can't cope with claustrophobic conditions, better to avoid the tube in rush hours, especially early in the morning or saturday evenings when Londoners head for party. Convenient rapid transit system, but it's no big deal if we compare with the opulence of Moscow underground, for instance. Cramped carriages, pay attention not to hit your head against the ceiling...

This is one of the world's oldest underground public train service. It works quite simply. Tickets per ride are not cheap, but the trains (most of the time) are efficient, run on time and have excellent coverage for the most part of London. The tube is the most convenient means of transport to get around London with. With renovations taking... More

After spending the weekend in London I can safely say the underground is fantastic a quick and easy way to get about. It's very simple to follow the routes. We brought an Oyster card which is like a pay as you go which was ideal for us and we can just top it up when we go to London next... More

I guess this is just one of those things you have to do when visiting London. There's not much to say other than it's an underground train service that runs flawlessly, constantly, very often, everywhere and is insanely efficient. Forget the bus - get the tube.
