This is the best thing in existence. For an enthusiast like me, this is just gold. Quick, easy travel on nice trains in a transit system that is a landmark in itself. The only way to travel

The Tube is by far the best way to get around town, unless you have a chauffeur and limo at your disposal. The Tube certainly the fastest and cheapest way to get around. For the most part, using the Tube is safe, even at night. But, nevertheless, don't let your guard down when using any public transportation... pick-pockets are everywhere... More

London Tube has been so helpful for our mobility within various zones during our short stay. With most of the attractions remaining within zone 1 and 2, it would be advisable for first time visitors to take Oyster Card and charge with scheme for Zones 1 & 2. However, for travelling to Heathrow Airport, you can top-up extra, as it... More

This is way cheaper than Cabs and the Tubes are clean and always on Time ! Make sure you download the Tube app on your iPhone so that you don't get lost. This was extremely helpful for us.

Went on a 3 day, 2 nights stay in London. We only spent 18 pounds on our Oyster cards each. And we really did use them a lot. It worked very well and was suuper easy.

OK, this may not be the cheapest form of transport but you can keep the costs down: Get an Oyster card & charge it with money & do not travel before 9.30am (Rush hour). We managed very well with the system, even though on many trips we had heavy cases to move. Major stations have folk to help & on... More

Easiest way of getting from one point to the other in London, provided your destination is near a stop. There's maps in practically every station, so if you're unfamiliar to this way of transportation and the different lines, you can always grab a map to hold onto while you're traveling. Can be quite a pickle when the line you need... More

The tube can be intimidating for first time users, but it is co incredibly useful that you get the hang of it very quickly. Being able to buy day passes that covered all of London for less than £13pp (and also including Watford Junction for less than £17pp) was great. It really made London easier to see and enjoy.

Memories of using the tube back in 1978/79 flooded back when my wife & I used the tube to get around the many places in London. Still a very efficient way to move from one place to another. They are alot cleaner (the stations) than what they were back in 78/79. Highly recommended to use.

The ease, availability and great connections of the tube system in London is a joy to use. Avoid some of the major stations at peak times, but I never had much problem even with the Christmas shoppers.
