Not entirely sure on what to put here. It runs smoothly, except on lines with maintenance, where it doesnt run smoothly. And buses run instead.

Very clean and easy to get around London, buy a Oyster card that's the quickest and easiest way , also cheapest. Staff are normally at hand to ask for help.

First time in London I used the underground with ease. You can get a 24 hour pass that will allow you to see all the attractions and more. I would like to use it between airports but feel no room for your luggage. Great for moving around the city if your not into the tour bus thing.

This is by far the best way to get around London! We were in London for 5 days, so we invested in Oyster Cards which we purchased at the Undergound Office at Heathrow. The Oyster Cards are reloadable rail passes that allow you easy admittance into and out of the underground system by "tapping" your card on the turnstyle readers.... More

One of the best in the world. Many stops, always in time, busy but there are trains every minute. A bit dirty but millions are using this service. Get an oyster card and go everywhere

The best way to get around the capital there is a train every two to three minutes or so and there is plenty of room on the trains you are never far away from a station

Great way to get around London. Pick up an oyster card in advance. Good for the buses as well. All underground stations have their own character. Check out Westminster.

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.
