The London Underground is a rapid transit system that serves a large part of Greater London and some neighbouring areas of Essex, Hertfordshire and Buckinghamshire. Because of it's complexity be sure that you have a London Underground Map to find your way round. These are available at all London Underground stations. you can even download one here: London Underground Map. It is the world's oldest underground railway system. Services began on 10 January 1863 on the Metropolitan Railway; most of the initial route is now part of the Hammersmith & City line. Despite its name, about 55% of the network is above ground. Popular local names include the Underground and, more colloquially, the Tube, in reference to the tubular cylindrical shape of the system's deep-bore tunnels.
The tube has 268 stations which will all be included on your London underground train map and runs over approximately 250 miles (400 km) of line, making it the longest underground zone map railway in the world by route length, and one of the most served in terms of stations. There are also numerous closed stations.
Each Tube line runs through different charge bands which are known as "zones" these are clearly identified on the London underground zone map. You can download this here: London underground zone map.
Beacuase of the complexity of the network you will be sure to need a London Underground Map. In 2005, 971 million passengers used the Underground and in 2007, for the first time ever, over one billion passengers were recorded. As of March 2007, just over 3 million passengers use the Underground each day, with an average of 3.4 million passengers on weekdays.
Since 2003, the Underground has been part of Transport for London (TfL), which also administers numerous other transport-related functions, including the famous red double-decker buses. The former London Underground Limited was a subsidiary of London Regional Transport, a statutory corporation.

The Underground uses TfL's Travelcard zones to calculate fares. Travelcard Zone 1 is the most central, with a boundary just beyond the Circle line, and Zone 6 is the outermost and includes London Heathrow Airport. Stations on the Metropolitan line outside Greater London are in special Zones 7-9, since January 2008.
The new tube zones 7-9 also apply on the Euston-Watford Junction line (part of the London Overground). With Watford High Street being within the zones, but rather bizzarely at present (Feb 13th 2008), Watford Junction is outside of these zones and therefore a special train fare applies.
There are staffed London Underground ticket offices where you can obtain your London tube station map, some open for limited periods only, and ticket machines usable at any time. Some machines that sell a limited range of tickets accept coins only, other touch-screen machines accept coins and English (but not Northern Irish or Scottish) bank notes, and usually give change. These machines also accept major credit and debit cards: some newer machines accept cards only. In 2005 the Underground started to accept American Express.
Underground sercice status...
More recently, TfL has introduced the Oyster card, a smartcard with an embedded contactless RFID chip, that tube travellers can obtain, charge with credit, and use to pay for travel. Like Travelcards they can be used on the Underground, buses, trams and the Docklands Light Railway. The Oyster card is cheaper to operate than cash ticketing or the older-style magnetic-strip-based Travelcards[specify], and the Underground is encouraging passengers to use Oyster cards instead of Travelcards and cash (on buses) by implementing significant price differences. Oyster-based Travelcards can be used on National Rail throughout London. Pay as you go is available on a restricted, but increasing, number of routes.
