All sudways work very well and there is a lot of frequency. All London perfectly connected by subway.

This is the most effective way to travel about Greater London. You can buy an Oyster Card and top it up at most tube stations. You can also use your credit card to "tap on" and "tap off".

A friend warned me about the street traffic. He said it's faster to walk than to take a cab or Uber. We used the underground every day. Get an Oyster card at the airport first. It's the only place we found that gave you a...More

A quick way to get around. Stairs to manage in many areas, however Covent Garden has elevators to manage the 196 steps! Can be crowded and seems a bit expensive at times depending on where you need to travel and type of pass. Can have...More

Used on a visit with the family to London. Jubilee line was excellent. Clean, quick and easy to use. Lots of escalators but easy to find the way around. Clearly sign posted

Londoners are lucky to have such an efficient and value-for-money public transport. It makes London look like a small village. Would never get fed up of travelling through the tube.

I have been to London a few times now and I have used the tube. It is very efficient. But make sure you pick your times of day to use it. Avoid peak hours during the week and even on a Saturday.

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

I don't think its a rule- I think people just generally keep to themselves and are politely silent. We certainly exchanged smiles, nods and offers of seats. Frankly, it's kind of nice to sit, relax and wait for your stop.
