We used the underground to get around London quickly and avoid the heavy traffic. It was very easy to find our way because of the excellent signage, but we found the free maps to be a bit small and hard to make out. Buying and...More

The underground always seems to be a quick easy way to get around London. Drawbacks - it's underground so you don't see any scenery and there are so many stairs to go up & down. Aside from that, it's affordable transportation.

There is no tube system in the world to compare with the brilliance that is the London Underground. And now that you can just present any credit card at the gate it’s even more convenient than it already was. Truly a world beater. For best...More

We were first-time tube users, and we did have some savvy co-travelers, BUT we found the tube easy to use and relatively clean. Appreciated the occasional vending machines on each platform, too.

We were in London for two weeks. After two days we became experts in the use of the Tube. Very clean and on time. Saves you walking the streets that change names at each intersection. There is a lot to see at the street level...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
