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.

Daytime:

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.

Evening:

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!

Conclusion:

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!!!!

advice to londoners -- SMILE!!! ;)

Welcome to Ciao. Unfortunately your review says very little about the underground. As my English teacher used to say .."could do better"

I've only been on the underground once. Didn't much enjoy it though!! As below, I'm not in a hurry to use it after watching Creep! Short but good review.

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

Frances Lincoln London Underground Poster Diary 2015

Frances Lincoln London Underground Poster Diary 2015

London Underground is renowned for its poster archive and the Tube has become London's ... more

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.
