With a map and an Oyster card through The London Pass, it was super fast and easy to navigate all over London. The stations were generally very clean and although a little stinky in a few places, on the whole smelled better than the New...More

Convenient to go anywhere in London, this is the tube in London, world-wide famous transporting system. Huge underground system and well-developed , no one will complaint about this tube, but everyone needs to take this.

The tube is not good in London. It is very smelly & you can tell they are not cleaned very often. The only good thing about them is they are USUALLY on time but there can be BIG delays for many reasons.

The underground is the way to go around London as a tourist (which is what we were). Make sure you get an Oyster Card as soon as you hit the first station. If you arrive at Gatwick take the train to Victoria and once there...More

Sure the London Underground may be convenient, but other than that, it doesn't have much else going for it. When travelling on the tube, I feel like I'm stuck in a sweaty, grimy, loud, smelly, uncomfortable, claustrophobic death box. Unfortunately, I can't live without it....More

Fast, efficient, trains everywhere, blink and you'll miss one, but expensive, overcrowded, and in the summer so dam hot. And the stations, compared to those in many other cities, like Paris, or Moscow, are ugly and full of buskers and thieves. Take a taxi.

An excellent subway system. Read up on how to use it before you go, Oyster Cards and such, and enjoy.

As an occasional visitor to London, I love the tube. Not just because I can see all the evocative names on the maps but because it's such an easy way to get around the city. The Oyster card makes life a lot more simple and...More

Can't quite understand why there's a review page for London Underground. But nevertheless, I like to leave reviews! We're probably so lucky to have the underground tubes! They are so convenient and although there maybe disruptions from time to time, which can cause chaos, they...More

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

It depends on the card, some do. Best to obtain a Oyster card on arrival from any ticket hall station or stores advertising the symbol Oyster. If you use it within the hour then it's free for that journey. Hope this is... More
