    The tube makes getting around so easy. Get an Oyster card & load it with money, then just scan before and after each trip at the turnstile. The amount will appear on a screen. There are signs when leaving each station advising passengers which way to walk. So easy.

    It was just after lunch on a Tuesday afternoon when we arrived here. This was obviously a popular time as it was extremely busy but coped well.

    The station itself is well signposted and we walked it from Euston. We were quickly through a very efficient but thorough security check and into the departure lounge.

    Not lots to see here and most of the chairs were taken as there was at least one train due to depart. This soon cleared though and it’s a comfortable area.

    There are places to eat and drink and of course business lounge if you are lucky enough to qualify for this!

    4 rides at 1.65 pounds each with the Oyster card then you can ride the rest of the day for 'free'. Also you can sit, relax and enjoy the view.

    Visited on Wednesday 23rd June 2021 As part of a day trip to London. Woolwich Ferry. It was still free and my first time on it since I went on it as part of the circular cycle around East London back in 2012. I exited the King George V DLR Station and walked the rather decrepit streets the short distance to the Woolwich Ferry. You can queue with your vehicle or walk under the Thames using the foot tunnel. I chose to queue and as there was only 1 of the 2 Ferrys in operation the time to wait was circa 20-30 mins. Once the Ferry was on my side, you could access the ferry and either stand in the open or the covered side seating area. The ferry takes about 10 mins to empty its vehicle and people contents and be refilled. The crossing takes about 10 mins and provides a free view down the Thames. Once in Woolwich, it is a similarly poor/decrepit area of now South London. Either way, unless you have a reason to use this free ferry there is little value to doing so.

    Man on the 21.07 train was just simply rude. Gave me no information about purchasing another ticket due to not having my railcard. Then when purchased a new ticket online, he told me I had to buy one from him and neither ticket at £100 in value were valid on the train. I have an evening ticket home, surely 1 hour earlier at 9pm didn’t hurt anyone on an empty train. Wouldn’t recommend.

    The train it’s self is comfortable however it is never really on time, it is always late.
    And sometimes cancelled. The longer distance trains are much better but can sometime the punctuality.

    Russell Square Tube station is in Central London on the Picadilly Line. There are trains running through Central London from Heathrow Airport, Uxbridge, Cockfosters and Leicester Square is only a couple of stops away with Covent Garden and Picadilly Circus also nearby.

    The station does not have any escalators. Although there are lifts there is sadly no step free access as there are steps from the platform to the lifts.

    The station is close to Russell Square which is a nice area to sit in good weather and there are quite a number of hotels nearby.

    When I visited I did not encounter any staff but I am sure they were available if necessary.

    The seats on Thameslink trains have so little padding, by the end of a journey it feels as if you've been repeatedly kicked up the backside. They also have an annoying announcement where a man says "If you see somethink suspicious..." Somethink! How hard is it to say a word properly?

    Nice way to link the Tates. At busy times best not to tap on to pay until the boat arrives and you know it is not full.
    Not great on boarding advice - people not really told what to do unless they did it wrong, however it is pretty obvious that you need to stand well back until invited to board!
    Great way to see London from the water.

    South Eastern Trains run services from Charing Cross and Cannon Street to South East London and Kent. In addition they also run high speed services from St Pancras to Kent.

    Obviously they run hundreds of trains a day and sometimes things go wrong whether it's their fault or the fault of 3rd parties.

    When I travelled with them the trains I caught ran on time and were clean. The staff were all professional.

    What a joke of a company in Wales shut the lines down every night staff stood around with ther hands in there pockets and when after 6 weeks of shutting the line down the signals fail and points fail what a joke they want to stop spending big money on managers back pockets and look after the public

    We’ve learned that the most time and cost effective way to get to central London to/from Gatwick is the Gatwick Express train. The cost £41.40 for two people, one way, from Gatwick to Victoria Station. With only 2 stops on the way the entire journey takes about 35-40 minutes. If you take a taxi it will be 1 hour 30 min and cost about £150! The trains are comfortable, mostly clean, and the best way to travel into central London.
