Going Underground

Waterloo Station is quite unique in the fact that it has an actual working elevator so those with mobility issues have access to and from the tube. It is not only people in wheelchairs who need a helping hand, as mothers with buggies and travellers carrying heavy suitcases find escalators extremely hard to navigate. If you are bogged down by a number of bags or have to rely on a guide dog to make sure that you are safe then it can be rather difficult to reach certain destinations in London due to the fact that they do not have a lift and the only option is to use the stairs. It has been a bone of contention for ages as there are many who feel discriminated against as they cannot seem to be able to gain entry to places like Monument, Trafalgar Square or Oxford Circus unless they take the bus. The Circle Line is near the surface and could almost be construed as an over ground service, as opposed to the Northern and Central Line, so it does not necessarily need elevators as you can quite easily board the tube without having to scale endless amounts of stairs. However, Regent’s Park, Covent Garden and Elephant and Castle have lifts which are constantly in use, so individuals with little ones and masses of luggage will be able to travel comfortably without having to worry about asking for assistance.

The capital of England is busy, bustling and booming at the best of times, and relies heavily on its underground transportation system. Those that are thinking of travelling on the District line on a Sunday may be savvy to give it a wide berth as it is well-known for being plagued with constant delays and sometimes you do not see a tram for hours. Placing your faith in fellow commuters is also an absolute no-no, as London-based residents are not exactly at their most gregarious first thing in the morning and will do anything to avoid contact with others.
