When carrying large bags on the tube please be careful of other people... I have seen someone almost knocked on the tracks because of a guy with a huge rucksack span round to talk to his girlfriend walking behind him.

when entering and exiting the station, instead of using the normal gates which you're likely to get stuck in... go to the far left or the far right and you'll see a larger gate usually manned by someone in a bright blue (tube staff) uniform, and they'll let you through.

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
