The London Underground (also known simply as the Underground or by its nickname the Tube) is a rapid transit system serving Greater London and some parts of the adjacent counties of Buckinghamshire, Essex and Hertfordshire in England. Opened on 10 January 1863, it is now part of the Circle, District, Hammersmith & City and Metropolitan lines.
