Welcome to British Isles Friday! British Isles Friday is a weekly event for sharing all things British — reviews, photos, opinions, trip reports, guides, links, resources, personal stories, interviews, and research posts. Join us each Friday to link your British-themed content and to see what others have to share. The link list is at the bottom of this post. Pour a cup of tea or lift a pint and join our link party!
I wanted to get comfortable using the Tube early in my stay in London, so I took advantage of a London Walks tour called Lure of the Underground. I got to get on and off several trains, see the inside and outside of stations, and learn all kinds of historical and architectural facts that most Londoners don’t know.
There are more photos from this tour and the rest of our trip to England on my Flickr Photostream.
I loved the Tube. I enjoyed the trains in Montreal and Chicago, too. New York confuses me, though. What cities have transportation systems that you find comfortable and easy to use as a tourist?
