there’s no faster way to get around London than with the Underground. The London Underground, also known as the Tube, has existed since 1863 and is the oldest underground subway in the world.
There are a total of 11 lines and about 270 stations. As a result, there is always a station available near the sights. It is very convenient to use a London Underground app. enter your start and end station here and the app will show you exactly which line to take and where you may need to change trains. Each line goes in 2 directions, make sure you take the right direction, this is indicated in the app and is also mentioned in the underground stations (eg Picadilly line Eastbound).

Each metro station can be recognized by the red circle with a blue line through it. Often 1 metro station has several entrances and exits.
Access to the Underground works with gates. When you enter an Underground station you scan the ticket and when you leave the other Underground station you scan the ticket again.
It is often busy in the Underground. Sometimes it is useful to wait for the next one, on most Underground lines there is a train every 5 to 10 minutes.
Various transport maps are available for the Underground. See the special tickets and cards in London page.
