We staying in London for 3 days in November and purchases £12.00 off-peak travel anywhere tickets. Used for Bus, Rail, & Tube. Excellent value. Once we got used to jumping from one underground station to another we found the service out of this world. In busy times its a tube train every 2 mins and be prepared to the rush... More

I came to London, added money to my oyster card and hit the tracks! The lines are quite easy to navigate once you get it :-)

Need to check trains carefully to make sure going the correct way. Saw several people get off in a panic as they were travelling in wrong direction

We appreciated the ease of travel throughout London when compared to our transit back in Canada. With the pre-ordered Oyster Cards we were on the move right from terminal 2 at Heathrow. All the maps/station markings made it easy to find our way.

Generally used the underground for 4 days, Sunday to Wednesday, parked the car at the end of the Jubilee line and stayed 3 nights in Earls Court total spent £19.50. We found the whole system so easy to use as long as you stay clear of rush hour, the carriages and stations were clean and the staff helpful.

This was our first time in London and not sure what to expect with the Underground. But it was so easy. Firstly get an Oyster Card before you go and put some credit on. Saves messing about trying to pay on a machine or getting money out underground. So many maps and info so you get on the right platform... More

This service runs so often it really doesn't matter if you miss one. Avoid rush hour as it is very packed and a bit of a squeeze which is not good.

My daughter is pregnant and the staff gave her a badge to wear that said "baby on board " which helped her get a seat when she became tired. Xx

Buy a pass and you are good to go. Clean, safe, easy to navigate. Forget renting a car in London. This is the way to go. Never had any hassles.

Staying in Westminster

Neighborhood Profile
If you only had an afternoon to experience London on a grand scale, Westminster would be a wise place to start. The ornate Houses of Parliament and Westminster Abbey sit adjacent at a corner of Parliament Square, and a short stroll along The Mall leads to Buckingham Palace. Trafalgar Square and Nelson's Column are just up the road as well. As captivating as the architecture is, the wonders of Mother Nature are highlights of the area too. St James's Park (arguably London's loveliest), the expansive Green Park, and pedestrian friendly tree lined paths along the river showcase the exquisite manicure provided by English gardeners. Just beyond the landmarks and the gorgeous outdoor spaces, quiet residential squares and age old local pubs offer a more subdued take on this global seat of power in the heart of London.
