"The Tube is...well, a tube...sometimes" Tube (Underground, Subway, Metro). Tip by Bela_LUng

Tube (Underground, Subway, Metro)., London: 421 reviews and 430 photos

The Tube can vary from one station to another. One place it looks clean, the other dirty like NYC. There are stations everwhere and you can get around pretty easily. Most of the time some essential portion of your ride is going to be closed for maintenance but that is usually clearly marked at stations.

Cost is about 1.70 pounds and a Day pass in zone 1 costs 5 pounds. Worth it in my book.

Travel to/from Heathrow by tube can take 1hr plus depending on where you are.

Type: Subway/Metro
