If a important station for transfers gets a closed line then you won't get a update on the line you are on prior to the junction. So easy to make better information flow for better customer experience. The sound levels in the tube is like...More

Spent a week in London UK and got an Oyster card to get around on the tube. Once you figure out the system (it looks intimidating on paper) it’s easy and convenient to use. Affordable and clean. Trains run often. There are people inside the...More

Having no sense of direction at all isn’t a problem on the underground as you only need to know what direction you are travelling in. Very clear easy to understand tube maps on all platforms and also on the trains. So much quicker than by...More

Quick way to get around apart from the Piccadilly Line which always breaks down. If I have the time though I prefer the bus.

We stayed at kings cross location , which I like as I feel I have more underground lines to choose from for my journeys. We enjoy using London Underground every time we visit London. Will always use it and like travelling this way.

Easiest way to get around London. You have to have an Oyster Card, which you can buy in local newsagents. This allows for cash free travel on trains and buses. Quick and convenient way to travel on the tube. Great maps and information on platforms....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

I'd recommend a day ticket, so that you can use it all day to visit some different places. As far as I know children under a certain age are for free! Always go with the underground, so you won't use precious "visiting time... More

You are going to be fine for the most parts. The only thing is that some stations are being renovated and have no escalators to get in or out! You are going to have to carry them!
