Extremely convenient and cost-effective. Can be tricky to understand initially but is a life saver eventually.

It's just a subway but it's very good, signals, but if you don't you could get somewhere you don't want to specially when it's different trains in the same route color.

Brilliant travel network. Easy to use. Never had to wait more than 5 mins for a tube. Very clear and easy to understand the different lines. Can pay with contactless payment. Quickest way to get round London.

For art lovers Tottenham Court road tube station is a must visit. The platform walls. Escalator ceilings and exit lobby are all decorated in mosaics designed by Eduardo Palozzi.

I loved the exciting atmosphere of the under ground, this is probably because I don't live in London, not sure that it would be so enjoyable if you had a physical disability as in busy times not sure you woul get the help you need, and if you have an aversion to noise, autism then you may need some ear...

This is not my first trip to London but it's my first having to push a baby. At first we were a little apprehensive but these fears were washed away by the helpful staff on hand at the station. Over the week we travelled via many different tube stations and had no problems navigating the esculators. There are a number... More

Using the underground, with a pre-bought Oyster card is quick easy reliable and efficient. We use it whenever we are in town.

As a first time user I found it very clean and easy to use. Staff when approached were helpful. Also swapping between train systems was easy.. will use again when next I am in London.

If you are somewhat concerned about using the tube in London, let me quickly put your fears to rest. Easy to use, there are lots of maps and a lot of people available to help you. We have travelled a lot but more off the beaten path, so we have little experience with subways. Believe me, it's easy.

Staying in Westminster

Neighbourhood 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.
