a.k.a. The Tube - London's underground train system, most of which runs deep beneath street level. U.S.: subway, but just to make things interesting, a "subway" in the U.K. - in London, at any rate - is a tunnel serving as a walkway under a busy street, and nothing to do with the Underground at all. An American in London needs to pay attention and not follow signs that say "subway" if what is wanted is the Underground.
