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
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
