Living in Warwick I don't often get a chance to visit London, its mainly on business when I do and the following review is based on my experiences during the day and in the evening.
I joined the underground network after a train journey on a southbound train from Warwick at about 8.30am. I was greeted by over 250 people at Euston, whilst making a connection on the northern line and the shear numbers of people pushing and shoving really did quite worry me. However the ticket machines were working properly and were well staffed and on the way back when I had the small misfortune of getting my £10 note jammed in a ticket machine; the staff were most helpful and sorted the problem in record time, allowing me to make my connection.
After a busy day sorting out a merger all of the team went out for a few beers and were extremely merry on the tube ride home, this added to the atmosphere and really made travelling on the tube a forfilling experience!
Bars need to be reinstalled down underground at the big stations to foster a friendly atmosphere and encourage a bit of banter on the tube!!!!
London Underground Map on polished stainless steel card that doubles as a mirror. The ... more
central part of the London Underground Map has been photographically etched on the card, which is so shiny the reverse works well as a travel mirror.There is no colour distinguishing the lines, instead a variety of patterns differentiates them and the featured legend and good eyesight will help you navigate the tube. It covers roughly the whole of zone 1 of the system. The back of the card is smooth and shiny and works very well as a mirror.The small print and the actual representation of the tube make this pocket map probably more suitable for regular commuters. Yet it is vital reference for when you need to re-route, and need to check which stop offers the best chance of getting to work

longest art gallery. Historically these eye-catching posters enticed prospective travellers indirectly by focusing on the destination rather than the mode of travel and as the Underground expanded so did its potential destinations - from the inner city, through suburbia and beyond to the rolling countryside. As well as a map of London's Underground, Tube facts and trivia, the London Underground Poster Diary 2015 features posters by famous artists and designers. It is a week to view and includes a ribbon marker and an internal storage pocket.
