The Tube is great so much better then the transport system in Brisbane, very easy to navigate also. Highly recommend grabbing an Oyster card.

London underground is my prefered way of moving around london. Huge network of undeground trains covering almost everywhere. I would say that it is ( along with buses) the cheapest and easiest way of transportation you will ever find.

up the road as well. As captivating as the
architecture is, the wonders of Mother Nature are
