Advantages quick and easy, fun.
Disadvantages can be delays, weird station names, can get crowded.
The Tube is the commonly known name for the London Underground. It is a system of mostly underground trains that run through the city. It goes out as far as HeathrowAirport on the west Side and as far as Upminster on the east side. There are 17 different lines on the Tube map and they each have their own colour so you can easily identify each line and where you want to go.Bakerloo=Brown
Many underground stations have several different lines crossing through them.It is also divided into 6 Zones-Central London is Zone 1 and Heathrow is Zone 6.
There are a wide variety of fares. Single Fares range between £2.00-£.3.80 and children get cheaper. Most visitors to London will buy a Day Travelcard. An off peak Adult Card for Zones 1 and 2 (Central London) is £4.30. The full range of fares can be found at http://tube.tfl.gov.uk/content/tickets/quickFares_2004.asp
Travelcards are the cheaper way to travel if you live and work in London. A 7-day Travelcard for Zone One is £17.00 and a monthly Zone One and Two is £77.60. There is such a wide variety it’s best if you check for yourself! The Tube website is very helpful. It also has details about student discounts etcUnderground Stations also have weird names. For example Oxford Circus. Who on Earth named it that? And Elephant and Castle. There is no elephant and there is no castle near by. And Seven Sisters? I mean whoever named these places must have been high. The foreign tourists must get very confused!
You will be seeing many, many escalators. Stand on the right. The left is for people running/walking up. Londoners tend to get very annoyed at people who don’t read the signs and who stand on the left!
