Over crowded, boing hot, sullen staff...... Come on TFL, sort it out, this line is consistently full from London Bridge to Moorgate. Today it was like the depths of hell heat wise and fellow travelers.

A bit overwhelming at first, especially for someone who rarely uses public transportation. The tube felt safe and was relatively clean. Yes, very busy and sometimes crowded - but that was expected for this time of year. The transportation staff was VERY helpful in giving proper routes for specific sites that we wanted to visit.

Travelled vastly on the underground and found the services to be good stations and tube carriages much cleaner and modern nowadays

No problems when I travelled last. In hot weather take a drink with you and try not to travel during rush hour. Don't expect to be offered a seat as you will not get most people offering one.

The underground is by far the easiest way to travel around London. Now that an all night service is running it is even better

I can't be positive enough about the London Underground. The staff, especially a young lady at St John's Wood station couldn't help enough and it's an excellent way of travelling around London. Buy an Oyster card, it definitely makes travel a lot cheaper and gives you plenty of scope to use TFL's options for getting around the city and beyond.

The tube system was very easy to use and the staff were all very friendly and helpful. The trains and stations were all clean and tidy. The services run very frequently and were not as busy as I expected. We always managed to get a seat!

Travelled to London with young child and elderly relatives. Tube was hot, sweaty, busy, as you expect and we loved it. Interesting hunting out the platforms with better access (Westminster comes to mind). We stayed outside the city (Perivale) and travelled in each day. Used the tube extensively with day travelcards, and even managed a trip on Thameslink ( over... More

I imagine many people will be familiar with the London Underground. Trains that go underground and get you from A to B in London. This review is based on my daily one stop return journey from King's Cross to Farringdon on the Metropolitan Line. If you can use this line for you journey, then do. The spacious, air conditioned carriages... More

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.
