“Any great city”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 April 2012

Any great city has great public transport. London's Underground varies from the very modern stations to those which are a bit decrepit. But it always gets you across the city. Buy an Oyster Card. Use it.

“Everyday user”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 April 2012

It's one of the worst subway systems I've ever suffered. I come from living in Madrid and, if we forget all the political issues they are having now, it's one of the best systems. The London subway system will struggle during the Olympics...

The london tube network is a bit of a hit and miss affair. When its good its very good, and when its bad its dreadful.

“Well used " attraction"”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 April 2012

I have been up and down to London for many years. Last year I brought my mum to London for a few days for her very first time, she is in her 70s so I was very concerned when it was time for us to use the tube.
I explained to her that sometimes there appears to be only a few people waiting at the station and then as you hear the noise of the tube approaching people appear as if from nowhere and rush forward to the tube. So I told her as we were going to the station how many stops it would take before we got off and all about the colour code lines. She did struggle at first with which line we should go on.
Well we were at the station, people came,people pushed and we were on, she got offered a seat,and she refused it, she wanted to stand, she loved the tube! She said it was one of her favorite parts of London.
