Mind the Facts!
Palmers Lodge loves the London Underground. It tells a fascinating story that often goes overlooked by tourists and locals alike. It’s not simply a mode of transport, but part of London’s history, and an integral element of many Londoners’ lives. If you’re sightseeing in London, it will also likely form the backbone of your trip, taking you from attractions to restaurants to the hippest pubs and clubs.
If you’re here during the summer, be prepared to beat the heat. The District and Circle lines have only begun implementing new air conditioned carriages. All other lines, save for the Metropolitan which has air conditioned trains, are not breezy and cool.
Waterloo is the busiest station, and an excellent stop for many sights, including: the London Eye, the London Dungeon, Somerset House, the BFI IMAX, and the Houses of Parliament (also accessed from Westminster station).
Although the Underground dates back to 1863, the now famous tube logo, the Roundel, only appeared in 1908. It now features in countless travellers’ photos and videos.
Remember to purchase an Oyster Card instead of a paper ticket to avoid queues and ensure you pay the cheapest fare.
