London underground is used everyday by lot of us to get to work.......during weekends, over crowding is not a problem....i never find it very expensive.........that is the reason why it is called customer friendly. All through the week, I have this train extremely frequent. Like me, it’s the only means of travelling in London for many. During weekends, sometimes have to undergo temporary suspensions…….for which I keep a constant check at TFL website. that ways you cant rely on it completely for weekends.........On Saturdays and Sundays, the Jubilee Line is merely a nightmare……….overcrowded trains…many a times I feel scary when trains stops for a while in a tunnel .....that moment I feel like I should use any other means of transportation………….no doubt cleanliness can’t be beated anytime…well maintained. Commuting across London simply takes less than an hour.
The seminal and pioneering London Underground is more than a mass transportation network - ... more
it is a style icon, its history involving some of the most important architects and artists of their time. From Frank Pick's vision to Metroland and Holden's innovative designs, David Long expertly weaves the story of the Underground - its abundance of characters (some good, some not so good), design firsts and brand identity - with Jane Magarigal's atmospheric photography. From suburban expansion to Blitz bombings and Soviet adulation, this book celebrates what remains a magnificent engineering and aesthetic achievement while providing an affectionate if slightly elegiac portrait of a London which is now gone for good.
