My first experience about London under ground trains or popularly known as tube was of impressive. London is known for tube network world wide and when you go into tube it not let you down. It is fast (or super fast in off peak hours), very frequent and connecting most of destination of London through their colorful lines. Initially I travelled to move around in London so most of time it was off peak travel. I must say in weekdays of off peak hours it is less populated, more clean and comfortable. But when I started travelling through tube in zone 1 to 3 of London I realized some of loopholes. In peak hours in morning specially, trains are full and pack (reminds me the mumbai local trains), not clean upto the standard, struck in between due to signal failure and so not as fast as expected. But looking overall it is good option to travel over bus, safe, frequent, covers many destination. It is real identity of London
