I don't live in London
But I'm down there every other month or so. Without fail, every time I visit, I have to play tube door jedi. Have to. For those not in the know, this is where you pick a point on the platform and the train has to stop with the door directly in front of you (or a foot to either side if you're not fully trained in the ways of the tube door jedi).

I'm actually really good at it.

EDIT - and obviously, you have to command the door to open doing that finger twitch thing. Because they wouldn't open otherwise, oh no.

totally this,
The other one is to add some extra skill and get the carriage that is nearest to the exit of the station you're getting off at.

strong are you in the ways of the force.
This also works at Cardiff Queen Street.

The way to get really good at it is
to let a few trains pass, note where the doors arrive at and average them out. Then wait for the third and be confident about it, not forgetting of course the single hand motion to "open" the doors.

Unless I'm mistaken
London tube trains seem to always stop at the exact same spot, so if you remember where a door was once you're set for life.

Every automatic door is a Jedi opportunity.

Join the dark side
by standing on the track on the right spot, so the train stops an inch or so before it hits you! Then, young Jedi, you will be mine! (cue cackling)

Dunno about London,
but this is a trivial game in the Glasgow one. There's clues on the edge of the platform.

Which actually I've just recalled I read about in a newsletter top tip, so ha!

There used to be
a book called Where To Get On And Off In London, on this very topic.
