Getting around the capital can be difficult, and whether you’re new to the city or facing travel disruption (potentially due to industrial action), familiarizing yourself with the London Underground network can help you get ahead of any problems you may encounter.

Fortunately, there are all kinds of resources available to you.

Transport for London has an app called Tfl Go which offers a map of the Tube network and live updates on the Tube and bus services.

If you’re looking at travel details in advance, you may want to check out the TfL Journey Planner, which provides more options for making your journey, including bike hire and nearby taxi ranks.

Whether technological issues prevent you from using online options or you just prefer to have a physical map in hand, here’s the easiest way to get the latest tube maps.

Transport for London publishes the latest tube maps on a dedicated section of their website.

While you might think there was only one tube map on offer, many variations highlight different factors along the network, such as the tube guide to avoid stairs. Both day and night tube maps are available.
