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.

particularly on stations and abandoned lines, many of which are in close proximity to burial sites from centuries ago. This chilling book reveals well-known and hitherto unpublished tales of spirits, spectres and other spooky occurrences on one of the oldest railway networks in the world. The stories of sightings include the ghost of an actress regularly witnessed on Aldywch Station and the `Black Nun` at Bank Station. Eerie noises, such as the cries of thirteen-year-old Anne Naylor, who was murdered in 1758 near to the site of what is now Farringdon Station, and the screams of children who were in an accident at Bethnal Green Station during Second World War, are still heard echoing. These and many more ghostly accounts are recorded in fascinating detail in this book, which is a must-read for anyone interested in the mysterious and murky history of London`s Underground.
