Underground wasn't as fast as I thought it would be, especially from airport as it is the cheapest option. Make sure to get an Oyster Card to use for it so that you don't have to constantly buy tickets. It has heavy traffic all times of day and walking around gives better views. However the trains come often and it... More

Whilst there is still ongoing works to upgrade, the place is wonderful, can get very busy, however, take the time to enjoy the wall arts, you are given loads of information, it is kept as clean as possible with the amount of people who are using it, different stations have different things to offer.

You can get anywhere in london in a flash but not so good if your a claustrophobic. It costs a bit to travel but better than battling the traffic .

Heard alot of negative remarks from people who've visited London travelled using the tube about delays and suspended service but guess we were lucky not to encounter any of the sorts. On time performance was superb and do hold onto anything you can find because it can get really unstable and shaky with that speed it's travelling on. The train... More

If you're faced with your tube line being closed and think the bus will be quicker, think again and check an alternate tube route. Buses in central London are a disaster....

Travelling by underground is living London. You can feel the real London by looking at the real londoners who rush every day thoughout the tunnels.

We went through Kings Cross and although we sort of new where we were going, decided to ask the lady who was offering assistance and tube maps. She was lovely and extremely helpful with a huge smile for everyone. Such a pleasure in a very busy environment.

Staying in Westminster

Neighbourhood Profile
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 highlights of the area too. St James's Park (arguably London's loveliest), the expansive Green Park, and pedestrian friendly tree lined paths along the river showcase the exquisite manicure provided by English gardeners. Just beyond the landmarks and the gorgeous outdoor spaces, quiet residential squares and age old local pubs offer a more subdued take on this global seat of power in the heart of London.
