  traffic jam at 5pm

London is crowded at the best of times but especially at the rush hour. This is around 8.00-9.30 in the morning and 4-5.30 in evening. It is better to avoid using the underground and buses at this time.
If driving then the roads will also be congested.
The radio gives regular reports on the traffic situation, whether delays on the underground, or roads where there are bottlenecks, accidents or road works; so it wise to listen in before setting out.
