The underground is fast, has plenty of stations and really easy to navigate. I like the way you can use contactless to pay. It does get very busy and it is not particularly clean, but it is the best way to get around London

Handy, accessible, and quick. The easiest way to pay is to use your swipe-enabled credit or debit card. Be prepared to walk along the tunnels connecting the stations, and be sure you know where yo want to go, before you go through the ticket barriers....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

up the road as well. As captivating as the
