Overground in London

The London Overground is an urban surface railway service, entering into service on November 11, 2007 enhancing some existing urban rail connections and integrating them with the underground network (Underground). The Overground comprises today the North London lines (between Richmond and Stratford ), West London (between Willesden Junction and Clapham Junction), Watford DC (between London Euston and Watford Junction and Gospel Oak – Barking.)

This will be included in the 2010 East London line, which was part until December 22, 2007 of the Underground network, and since that date closed for transformation work. The tickets are the same as the Underground, just as it is possible to use the Oyster card itself, but as always you have to pay attention to the (numerical) zone in which it is located.

DLR in London

The DRL is a raised subway integrated with the citizen network that leaves Bank or Tower Gateway connects the center of the city with Docklands and East London, passing through Canary Wharf, Greenwich, London City Airport, Stratford to the periphery. From 10am, special trains leave every hour from Tower Gateway with a tourist guide on board.

Interesting to discover the changes that are in East London. The prices are the same as the metro, the tickets allow you to also take advantage of the areas along the Thames, for example to return to the center.

The metro in Londra

The London Underground is the oldest underground line in the world. It was inaugurated in 1863 and after almost 150 years it is the most efficient and fastest way to walk in London.

It is important to understand from the beginning how to use the subway in London and we advise you to always carry a map of the subway with you. The stations are more than 270 and it is easy to get lost among the 11 lines of the metro, our advice is to always have a map and especially to verify well where you want to get before venturing into the cunículos to get to the exits of the trains.

If you are wrong in fact, you risk walking more to get to the subway than going directly to your destination walking. In English: METRO is called UNDERGROUND or TUBE
