Signal Failures, Broken Trains and Heat!

♣ The London Underground ♣ ----------------------------------------- Considering I travel on the London Underground at least 6 days a week, it seemed fitting that I came across this category to write under. On top of that, two years ago I spent two days raising money for St Helena...

Quick Easy and Frequent

Expensive and Bad In The Heat

The London Underground well I consider myself a bit of an expert on the system having worked there as a Control Room Operative based at Euston Station. Below I will give my experiences of the Underground from every angle I can think of and I hope this does not bore you to much lol. HISTORY OF THE...

Great when it works

Awful when it doesnt!

Ok well before I start, I know Im going ot get lots of comments saying 'I hate the tube' etc... Dont get me wrong, there are problems and it can get awfully busy, but I think we love to grumble and have to realise what an amazing facility the Underground is, especially when putting it into...

What would we do without the London Underground? Yes, we all complain about how bad it is, but just stop and think – Is it really as bad as it appears? This review is not about prices or a history of stations or where they are or where they are going to. There is enough information for would be...

“Better than nothing, right?”

published 21/07/2006

Quicker than the bus.

Too expensive; isn't 24 hrs; unreliable

Ask someone to list the four biggest, sexiest, most cultured and most important cities in the world, and it's a good bet that you'll hear New York, Paris, Tokyo and London. But without a decent public transportation infrastructure, a city's claim to be up there with the big boys takes a hard...

Dirty, Smelly, No Disability Features.

The London Underground. ~History~ The LU was the first ever underground railway in the world. Its Metropolitan line was the first ever and it was constructed in 1868 and ran between Paddington and Farringdon on steam hauled trains. Since then the network has had an extra 12 lines constructed and...

“A necessary evil”

Quicker than walking and bus

Too many to mention

I was fortunate enough to be brought up in a rural part of England. People would pay money to come and see the sights that I walked past on my way to school and I didn't give it a second thought. I simply thought that the town I lived in was boring and that London was where it was happening. I...

This review should prove useful for tourists, those moving to London, or just the simple day-tripper. When travelling on the underground (commonly known as the 'tube') you have to marvel at the fact that you are travelling on the worlds first underground system, which most major world cities have...

Price, people, etc!

My personal expperiences with London Underground are fairly good. It is not a perfect service, the people tend to be nasty, and they keep raising the ticket price! BUT, without it, getting places would be a lot more difficult, and i suppose you get alot for the price, compared to trains to other...

A few weeks ago I returned from a weekend in London and thought I should write this as I was fairly disappointed. I would imagine that for residents of London using the Underground on a regular basis this review will be off little help however for any tourists hoping to visit London in the near...

Can be over crowded and very warm.

London Underground consists of 12 different colour coded lines (13 if you include the DLR - I haven't included it here as I have a separate review on that) Each line has its own rolling stock and Drivers specifically trained to drive on their own lines. At times the LU can be a very hot and...

Few hazards on network

As somebody who, at the time of writing, makes fairly frequent visits to London from Newcastle I tend on travelling to my destinations via the London Underground and to be quite honest it's a system I love to use... but perhaps not every single day. In Newcastle we have a rail system similar to...
