"Tube Etiquette No 1 Deodorant" London Local Custom Tip by Cham

London Local Customs: 710 reviews and 860 photos

  Mind the Gap
by Cham

The tube can get very hot in the summer, in fact it's pretty hot in the winter with the tubes being victorian tunnels so no air con. Please please please... if you're going to travel at rush hour, which will mean someone will be pressed up against your arm pitts, wear deodorant... there's nothing worse than leaving work after a hard day than being wedged into the tube with 500 other people and having to spend that 20 minute journey trying to avoid getting tainted with the smell of B.O. with people thinking it's you and not the guy in front of you... breathing can also be a problem.
