You'd think that such a small station would be on the list to be upgraded for more capacity but... it's not. Russell Square gets insane during the (weekday) (and weekend) rush hours because it's very close to several major office buildings and the massive British Museum.
The station is in Travelcard Zone 1 on the Piccadilly Line, between King's Cross St Pancras and Holborn. Another station...more
Busy. Russell Square Tube Station is not one that was originally created for the crowds it receives today, but considering how long it has been around and how busy it gets... this station stays pretty clean.
Lifts are regularly out of service or slow. While waiting for the next available ride one normally hears people expressing that the stairs are a good option. GOOD FOR THEM!
Poorly organized and the lifts come at infrequent intervals. For no apparent reason, there are large tour groups queued up here every Sunday morning, so remember to top up your oyster before you go home for the night.more
This station is really small, and the elevators were always out of service, so I had walk up about 178 stairs every morning. They need to update this station.more
Damn you for being closed (under construction) when we went to London to visit!! This made it difficult for us since we had to get off at Kings Cross, then walk a few thousand miles (exaggerating) to our hostel. I guess it wasn't toooooo bad since Kings Cross was a bigger station and it did house the international terminal to catch the tube to Paris but still -- so inconvenient.
