The Elizabeth Line, London’s newest rail line and named in honour of Her Majesty the Queen, opened its doors to passengers 24 May 2022, almost four years later than planned and apparently massively over-budget. We live not far from one of the stations on the western side of the route and were keen to see how much the line would improve travel times to East London.
We’re now made several journeys across London and it’s safe to say that we have been impressed. The rolling stock is new, the Elizabeth Line platforms are new, spacious and accessible to everyone, the price is the same as the Tube and best of all, travelling time is much, much quicker.
