During our London vacation we rode the Underground mostly. We like the sign that alerts us how soon the trains are coming. There is no air conditioning on the trains so it was uncomfortable. They come on time otherwise the management announces the delay. People...More

Having used the underground for many many years on business, I have watched it develop into the great transport service it has become! Yes, it can get packed at times but in general, its now a service to be proud of as a Londoner.

We used the underground everyday, numerous times while in London. It is a great way to travel and so easy. We organised Travel Passes before we arrived in England And it was fantastic. We would do this again if we travelled to London.

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
