"Tube Etiquette No. 8: Escalators" London Local Custom Tip by Cham

London Local Customs: 717 reviews and 883 photos

On the escalators please keep to the right hand side, the left hand side is for people wanting to walk up or down them in a hurry. Standing on the right hand side could end up with people huffing and puffing behind you until you realise... at best asking you to move out of the way... or at worst they'll just push past you... it's a long way down.

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
