We were able to get around London very easily and quickly using the tube. Be aware - rush hour gets very busy and crazy! But otherwise, we didn't have any issues. There are even employees to help you with your Oyster card or directions, if...More

Great way to get around the city. Friendly staff to help you out with routes and fares. Can be challenging when traveling with a suitcase but the riders are tolerant!

The Underground (subway/metro) system in London is one of the most amazing subway systems I have encountered. You can seamlessly transfer between stations, train stations, airport express, buses...the OysterCard (the transit card) is easy to purchase, reload etc. The subway is also safe, and very...More

I've been using the Underground since I was a child in the 1950s and much has not changed a bit in all that time. A few more lines, in carriage announcements perhaps but that's about it. Like the Tube Map - a timeless clasic.

If you dont have the oyster card, then you'll need to make one at any one of the stations, top-up the card and you can be on your way to all your favourite spots.

Called at the visitor centre at Euston for an Oyster card.... Recommended method to ease travel on underground, overground and bus.

Hot and over-crowded on the Northern line - the Easter lull is well and truly over!! Not yet summer but a sign of the discomfort ahead.

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

The only thing I can say is I always felt very safe, however, I was with my husband. I can say we saw many women and young girls on the tube by themselves. We were in the central and west parts of London. I would say use... More
