The London Underground (called “The Tube”) is today among the longest in the world and carries an average of 2.67 million passengers per day. The tube serves 270 stations, divided into 12 lines, and travels a total of 402 km. It is certainly the fastest way to get around London, as well as one of the most convenient.

The London Underground is the oldest in the world. The first London Underground line was built in the mid-19th century, and the inauguration took place on January 10, 1863. At the time, it was a line of approximately 3 and a half miles that connected Paddington and Farringdon on the Metropolitan Line.

Even the famous red double-decker buses are a possibility for surface travel. Special tourist tickets can be purchased on tourist buses, which allow passengers to get on and off the bus at the main attractions.

INFORMATION ON TICKETS:

The best and least expensive way to travel on the London Underground is to purchase a Travelcard. This is a ticket that allows you to travel both by metro and in the City buses. There are Travelcards valid for 1,3,4 and 7 days. It is advisable to use the subway after 9.30 am and thus buy an Off-Peak Travelcard (ie outside peak hours), with this arrangement you will save enough.
