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 the United Kingdom. The Underground has its origins in the Metropolitan Railway , the world's first underground passenger railway. The system's first tunnels were built just below the ground, using the cut-and-cover method; later, smaller, roughly circular tunnels—which gave rise to its nickname, the Tube—were dug through at a deeper level. The early tube lines, originally owned by several private companies, were brought together under the " UndergrounD " brand in the early 20th century, and eventually merged along with the sub-surface lines and bus services in to form London Transport under the control of the London Passenger Transport Board LPTB.
