Living above a tube tunnel - yay or nay?


Recommended Posts


We are First Time Buyers looking to buy our first home. Just wondering if anyone has any experience of living above an Underground tube tunnel? We are looking at a property where there is noise and vibration from the Piccadilly Line underneath. Would this significantly reduce the property's resale value, and is it a quality of living issue? The only discussion I've found on this is this thread, but it is rather old so I'm wondering if improvements have been done to the Underground since then to improve this issue.

Thank you, looking forward to hearing your thoughts!

Thanks Julia - the reason I brought this up is because the real estate agent flagged it when we enquired about the property. It has been sold relatively frequently (2002, 2015, 2021), so I'll probe the REA about the current homeowner's motivations for selling.
