"Tube etiquette" London Local Custom Tip by phil_uk_net
London Local Customs: 717 reviews and 883 photos
While travelling on the London Underground (and for that matter at any other time in London) avoid eye contact with fellow passengers at all times and under no circumstances talk to anyone that you do not know. Failing to heed this advice may result in accusations of you being insane, or worse. Why risk losing that wonderful sense of loneliness and isolation by meeting another friendly human being?
Another heinous crime in London is to stand on the left hand side of the escalator. If you want to stand, and let the escalator do the work, do so on the right. The left is reserved for those people who can't waste a second in life and need to run up and down escalators.
Mind the gap!
A familiar announcement on the Underground. With straight train carriages and curvy platforms there is sometimes a gap between the platform and the train when you get on or off. Be careful, especially on very curvy platforms.
