So very easy to travel around central London when using the underground. Very easy to follow map. Clean stations and very helpful staff. Much quicker than using bus and trains always on time

We travelled all over London by underground and it worked out well. Sometimes we had to line for tickets and it was very crowded but it was an adventure

As always the tube was busy at 6 pm but I managed to get a seat when passengers noticed my walking stick. Our return journey at 10.45pm was a joy. The stations we used are well maintained and clean, staff on hand are very helpful. Totally different to how it used to be when I travelled regularly a few years... More

Absolutely no better way to travel. If you can, avoid the rush hours (before 9 and 5-6pm) as the Tube is VERY crowded. The Oyster card is handy and convenient. Information is available on the website.

Although some of the stations could use a refresh, the Tube runs smoothly and efficiently, and will get you close to anywhere you need to go in in London. If you are in London for more than 3 days, get an Oyster card. You can get a reimbursement of the unused credit at the end of your stay.

Hot and overcrowded in the sunset...hot and overcrowded in the winter...the only good thing for party-goers is the limited 24-hour service...It's part of the fabric of London...and world leading...but it's still a bit crap!

Clean, well organized, several lines, efficient, alerts, and you reach your destiny in minutes; instead of paying a fortune on cabs and stuck in a traffic !!

Staying in Westminster

Neighborhood Profile
Westminster
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.
