The London Underground

 

London's underground railway is the world's oldest, dating from 1863 with the opening of the Metropolitan Railway between Paddington and Farringdon Street. The Tube now has 12 separate lines, more than 243 miles of track and 275 stations.

 

Every day, more than 3 million passenger journeys are made on the Tube, with over 900 million journeys in an average year. At peak times (7.30-9.30am and 4.30-7pm), overcrowding can be intense. During the day, the Tube is an excellent alternative to the car for travelling in London.

 

Using the Tube

The Tube system is divided into six zones with fares priced according to the number of zones. All trips taking in central zone 1 are more expensive than the outer zones.

• Unless you have to get to early morning meetings, avoid travelling before 9.30am -discount fares generally apply after this time.

• Travelcards, offering unlimited travel on the Tube, bus and trains can be good value, especially if you have a number of places to visit during the day. They can be purchased for the day, week or even month, from tube stations and newsagents.

• A number of more modern tube stations now have lifts for those unable to manage escalators and stairs.
