I always purchase an Oyster travel card for underground travel. A real bargain if you use it at all. London Underground is so easy to use; people are orderly; signs everywhere making it a no brainer. Highly recommend to see London.

Very easy to use, directions to platforms clear and usually no schedule problems (sometimes trains are delayed or services stopped but for reasons out of their control).
Best way to move around London if in a hurry, always felt safe too, and clean enough given the volume of people it transports each day.
Not sure about rush hour, it's been a long time since my last commute on the underground (I recall it being very busy but it was expected).
A credit to TfL.

We were trying to get to Parliment which took an hour by cab. On our way back to the hotel we decided why not the tube. 10 minutes and done. Try it it’s worth the ride and time!

We bought an Oyster card & used it all the time. The tube is so easy to use. Every line has it’s own color as well as maps at each station saying where it goes. We did download the tube app onto our iPhones & upgraded it. It was awesome . Just type in where you are & where you want go & it brings up fastest trains to take & which car to get in so you get off at closest exit. A must have. At end of trip just refund at any station. So simple!

Was very surprised at how easy the underground is to navigate. In New York we get lost several times but the signage is very helpful here and used it a lot
