Perfect size for popping in your pocket. Laminated for durability (and possibly use in the rain). Can't judge the true effectiveness/ accuracy until I get to London this summer. Can't wait!

Handy, but use your readers. April 16 2011
By maria - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Map Verified Purchase
Very handy to use for getting around on the Tube. The print is small though, so if you are a baby boomer, use your readers. Laminated and of good quality. Holds up to use and the expected London showers.

Travel tip: Check the London Tube website for information on what lines will have shutdowns on the weekends. They are doing extensive refits and repairs on certain lines for the up coming 2012 Olympics. The information changes weekly.

AND: Buy an Oyster Card for very much reduced fares on the Tube, as well as all buses and some trains. You can easily buy them at the airport and local Tube stations, newsstands, and money change stands. Just put a certain amount of money on it and recharge it as needed. No need to buy in advance. I kept mine in the corner of an outside pocket of my crossbody travel purse and just held the purse up to the reader and did not have to constantly take it out and put it back. Learn the bus routes from around your hotel, online, before you go and just keep some notes with you! The site is full of route maps you can print also. Every stop has a bus spider map and tells you clearly the routes that those buses take. The drivers are very helpful, as well. It is very easy to use and you get to see everything as you go. Loved it! We traveled even at peak hours and had no issues.

MAKE VERY sure that you touch the card to the exit reader on the TUBE as it will drain your card if you don't. On buses, just get off; you do NOT use the reader as it will just charge you for that route.

Didn't get wet, fit in pocket, accurate, handy, what more could be wanted. I marked it with a fine point sharpie to find stuff.

Instead of small and convenient... it's tiny! July 15 2010
By Cruise Queen - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Map Verified Purchase
Ordered this map for multiple travelers on our London trip because it is (1) laminated (indestructible) and (2) offered "hot spots" as opposed to the publicly available tube maps which make no reference to landmarks. I was not disappointed on those two points. However, I was a little confused when I bought it that the ~ 8" x 3" size was folded, and that it was going to be roughly the size of a sheet of paper. It is not! That is the FULL SIZE of the map. Fold it in threes and it is the size of a credit card. So it is TINY by map standards, and that makes it difficult to read for older eyes. Otherwise, couldn't be happier with the purchase.

Underground Map April 24 2009
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Map Verified Purchase
I have very limited time in London on an upcoming trip, so I want to waste as little time as possible traveling between points. I love the size of this Tube map -- don't want to be weighed down with heavy guidebooks either! The size will make it easy to pack -- though it also makes the map a little harder to read, especially with older eyes.

Not Worth The Money Feb. 26 2011
By Robert J. Lewis - Published on Amazon.com

This map is incomplete. Only includes the biggest tube stops. You can get a free map at most tube stops that is much better than this map. Don't waste your money.
