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

Imagine life without the London Underground...The iconic Tube has been transporting ... more

Londoners around Britain`s capital for 150 years,
and today 150,000 passengers use the Underground
every hour. This fascinating miscellany takes us
on a round-trip through every aspect of the London
Underground, from the history of its construction
to its many appearances in books, films and
popular music, giving a glimpse into the technical
marvels beneath our feet and the many human
stories that play out in its trains and tunnels
every day. 1845: A pamphlet is published in which
Charles Pearson, a London lawyer, pushes the idea
of an underground railway to transport both
passengers and goods to the city centre. 1863: On
10 January the Metropolitan Railway goes down in
the history books when it opens the first
subterranean railway in the world. 1998: A
previously undiscovered breed of mosquito, adapted
to life underground, is discovered living in the
Tube network. 2012: Close to one million people
use the Northern line alone, every day.
