As someone who relies on transit for day to day use, nothing compares to the Tube. The only downside is it`s expensive. However it gets you all around London. Also try to avoid during rush hour. Also buy an Oyster card, saves you trouble.

The underground was as it always is, packed with people everywhere.. Queues at all entrances and exits as well as waiting for the lift. Although wasn't queueing for too long the queue went down in a reasonable amount of time. As the population increases over time,more and more people are using the underground. So thankfully the trains arrive every coupe... More

We have been to London on many occasions. The tube is a nightmare when busy, herded like cattle, pushed and shoved. Not so bad if your young and agile, lots of stairs not ideal with luggage and everyone is in such a hurry. They dont do the weekend deals anymore for visitors so it can prove quite costly. It really... More

An efficient and quick way of getting around London. Get an Oyster card for discounts. Trains run often on all lines and stations.

the london underground when you look at the maps they seem confusing but it works basically on colours and so easy to use. definitely need to get Oyster cards as they make it easier and cheaper to get around, if you get stuck ask a passengers as they are more helpful than the staff.

Tube was fast and easy to use to get around London. Some Stations have stairs that users must climb. Since we weren't in a hurry, we would wait for the rush to pass, and take our time on the stairs. Oyster cards were easy to purchase, use, and top up. Signs were very clear and easy to follow. Take the... More

The underground, trains, and buses were our only transportation for the 2 week stay! Our feet were also. Lots if walking and good exercise. It's also fun to see the diversity of people. There is no place unaccessible in London with these forms of transportation. Just get oyster cards to save money. I spend more on gas and upkeep for... More

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.
