Its useful, I found that it wasn't over packed but we weren't travelling at crazy rush hour, liked that you got around quickly. It was clean, and people were friendly than I was expecting.

Nice way to get around London. The sad thing is that you are underground. But if you have a limited time and should commute from A to B, it is perfect.

travelling in london is a song if you have the oyster card and keep to the tube. rush hours should be avoided - but the connections at stations are well organised with enough signage to help you. the staff also are very helpful

When not doing line maintenance on the weekends, it is a very efficient way to get around London. The necessary items to carry are the Oyster card and a London tube map. I wish the writing was a little large at the locations the services...More

Honestly the best way to get around London! I was sceptical at first because I was scared to get lost, but it was all wasted energy. Trains arrived 2-5min apart and the maps were easy to read.

Frequent services allowing you to travel across London with ease and relatively cheaply. No matter what the locals tell you it's much more efficient and value for money than public transport elsewhere in the country!

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

almost every great stations has a private store that charges and take time to let it in for security. London is a very safe place.

The only thing I can say is I always felt very safe, however, I was with my husband. I can say we saw many women and young girls on the tube by themselves. We were in the central and west parts of London. I would say use... More
