The London Underground (known to the locals as the ‘tube’) is the most famous and most used part of London’s public transport system.

The tube is one of the best ways to get from London Heathrow Airport to central London and also a great way to get around they city.

Tickets are available at vending machines or ticket booths inside tube stations and all day tube passes are known as ‘Travel Cards’ and are cheaper if you buy them off peak (after 9:30am)

If you’re staying in London for a even a wek it may be worth looking into an ‘oyster’ card to save you money on your tube travel.

Central London isn’t huge however and walking is one of the best ways to get around and see the city. Walking from one place to another can sometimes be faster than taking the tube.
