is the london underground safe?

Wr are 2 females in our mid twenties travelling to london in a few weeks. We are planning to take the underground sometimes and would like to know if it is safe late at night.

Yes, as long as you "mind the gap."

The tube is overwhelmingly safe. There is the rare attack or problem. But they are VERY rare and the tube is safer than public transport anywhere in the States.

the underground is one of the places that Blair has been saying is a possible terrorist target. The warnings he has been giving are serious ones.

We were there in mid-May and were quite impressed with the Tube.

Relatively clean and doesn't have the Paris smell (love Paris).

Always felt safe.

as there is no air conditioning on the tube it is difficult to see how they could pull off a really big atrocity. sure they could blow up a station and they might kill a few hundred.

Safe and polite. My wife was always offered a seat and we never felt remotely threatened.
