    Every big city should have a service like this. Amazing, on time, clean and easy to use. You just need to buy a £5 card and then top up.

    Wow! If you are in London then don’t miss this spectacular railway station.
    It was nearly demolished but thankfully it was saved.
    The £800m renovation project around the early 2000’s transformed it into the most fabulous station with high end shopping & eating available.
    It’s truly stunning!

    Although very busy the staff here were excellent and very helpful to a weary traveler. Beautiful building if you stop to enjoy it. Good choice of shops and well signed to make it easier to move around.

    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.

    Shambolic service, continuously delayed, poor explanation and non existent compensation service. If there was an alternative this company would not exist

    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.

    There are so many dilapidated stations, network rail should restore them to their glory rather than charging high prices for journeys and paying high wages to executives.

    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.

    We travelled through Euston Station on our way to and from Watford Junction. Early impressions were poor - the entrance wasn't really what a major train station's should look like, brutalist-like architecture, and slightly claustrophobic. But ignore all that (it wasn't easy) and the station does work as a terminus for trains. Not a place we wanted to linger in for long, so we were glad when plans to renovate/refurbish it were announced.
