Travelling the tubes with a wheelchair user is getting easier, but it’s still very testing. The kindness we were shown was second to none. Not only by the underground staff but also by general members of the public. Everyone went above and beyond to help...More

We rode the underground from Heathrow to our hotel and then all over London. The stops were well placed near everything we wanted to see. We bought a London pass online before arriving and it made everything so easy. We were in London for 5...More

We had a whole day using all of the transport and the underground formed part of it. Our youngest daughter didn't like it it's very loud but it formed part of the experience. I wouldn't recommend using it with young children or a pushchair or...More

The underground is really amazing. It comes so often that you hardly ever have to wait more than a few minutes. My only complaint was based on being in London in the summer heat wave and the trains do not have AC or much air...More

Get a map or city mapper app and utilize the tube! We visited for only 3 days so we had to make up a lot of ground and we enjoyed the public transportation.

The Underground is very easy to navigate even for people who are not from areas that have a subway. We switched between lines and had no trouble getting to where we needed to be. The Underground would be my suggestion for traveling around London.

Great way to get around. To be honest it should be the only way to get around. Traffic is nuts and the Tube is easy and goes almost everywhere. We felt safe and it was very easy to navigate.

We were travelling round for four days with two pre-schoolers, which might be considered by some to be madness. Accessibility was a challenge at times - our solution was to fold and carry the pushchair, with the younger son also in arms. I wouldn't want...More

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

Take the Bakerloo Line from Paddington to Piccadilly Circus and then it is about a 2 min walk. I cannot say specifically how stroller (pram) friendly it is, but we did our entire trip with one last year and only had 2-3... More
