London has one of the best underground systems for people to get around. It's lines are easy to follow, the stations and cars are clean, and the people are civil without the pushing and shoving that often we experience in our US metro. Lots of stops and you can use your pass for buses too which are also convenient, easy to ride and follow.

Look this is the Underground that started it all. Londoners have done a fantastic job keeping this easy to get around for all us visitors regardless of language barriers. Don't be afraid to use it. They have great informative maps and there is always personnel to help you navigate your way through. I love the Tube and take it everywhere I go. It connects to trains and bus stations making getting around a breeze. VERY afforable. Just be cautious as some of the ticket machines only take credit cards so make sure you activate yours before you leave.

From where we live, public transportation is hit or miss. Plus, it could take several minutes to hours to when the next train, subway, and/or trolley comes. The underground was very impressive in the frequency it came. It's something that many might take for granted but knowing and experiencing different places of public transportation, the underground works really well.

The Underground is a very efficient way to travel. There are well marked stations most places that you would want to be. The map is easy to follow and the trains and platforms are clearly marked in the stations.
The Oyster Card allows you to prepay for rail service and will max out at a certain amount every day. We were able to buy a card for a £5 deposit and then put £25 on it. It got us every where we needed to go for three day. While in Paris we bought a tourist pass for €131 for four days. You can go to any information center and they will help you with it. Best purchase I made in London!

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.
