London Transport Museum in Covent Garden Piazza, London WC2E
- by CityWest Residential
The London Transport Museum showcases the full history of public transport in London, from the original horse powered tram to the most modern buses and tube trains. With several different contraptions to climb on and steer, the London Transport Museum is a favourite destination for young transport enthusiasts.
Exhibits include the history of the public bus, a comprehensive display of Transport for London maps and signage, and a wonderful selection of rail vehicles. There is also a small but fascinating exhibit outlining the future for the public transportation industry, and where London transport will be moving next. The museum can get very busy during school holidays, with visitors travelling from across the country to enjoy the exhibitions, so if you are a London resident it is well worth choosing off peak times for your visit in order to really get the most out of your trip.
The museum does not sell one day entrance tickets, however annual passes cost just £16 and these tickets can be retained to allow you to revisit the museum as many times as you would like in a twelve month period. Kids go free.
Opening Hours: The museum opens seven days a week from 11am to 6pm on Friday and from 10am to 6pm from Saturday to Thursday.
Nearest Tube: Covent Garden – 2 minute walk
