London Underground

The London Underground can be safely called one of the sights of the British capital. There are a number of reasons for this:

1. London Underground is one of the oldest in the world. It appeared in 1863, ahead of, for example, Moscow by about 70 years.

2. The London Underground is one of the longest in the world. It includes 12 lines and about 270 stations. The total length of its tracks exceeds 400 km.

3. The number of daily passengers on the London Underground is also quite impressive, it amounts to about 3 million people a day. This figure exceeds the population of many cities.

Among other things, London subway looks very neat. His work schedule is from 5:30 to 00:00 6 days a week, and on Sunday from 7:00 to 23:00. Trains don't have to wait long, they appear at every station every 2-3 minutes.


Metro station

As for the fare, it can differ significantly depending on   your   destination. The cost of a metro ticket is calculated according to the number of traffic zones crossed. There are six of them, from central London to the very outskirts. If we count the neighboring counties, which can also be reached by metro from the capital, then there are even more zones. For a trip inside the first zone, an adult will have to pay 3-4 pounds, a child - half that. If you plan to make long and long trips on the subway, you can purchase a daily or weekly ticket (in the second case, you will need your photo).  

The rules of conduct in the London subway are not much different from ours: do not go for yellow line on the platform, keep to the right on the escalator, do not give used tickets to beggars. It is worth noting that if you need a trash can, it is better to use it at the entrance to the subway, because due to the threat of terrorism, there are no trash cans in the London subway itself.
