Location and what to expect 📍 👀
No visit to London would be complete without a visit to London Transport Museum. Nestled in the heart of bustling Covent Garden, the Museum tells the story between the growth of London and its transport system. Many familiar sights, sounds and smells that shape the Capital come from its transport, whether that be its red buses, Underground roundel design or even the brand-new Elizabeth line, and at London Transport Museum you can discover it all.
Starting with 19th-century horse-drawn buses and the first underground railway, all the way through to the latest innovations with the Elizabeth line in the Future Engineers gallery, visitors will travel through the last 220 years to hear from the people that helped shaped this great city. Little ones can explore the All Aboard playzone and have fun amongst the fleet of interactive vehicles, while adults will love learning about the iconic design of the early Tube logos, maps and advertising posters that are synonymous with travelling around London today.
This summer, you can enjoy London Transport Museum’s ‘Green Journey’ display and workshops where you can explore the effects of climate change and how we can all play our part in London’s green journey to net-zero. This event forms a part of the Museum’s 18-month Climate Crossroads programme shining a light on sustainable cities, travel, transport and greener skills for the future.
As well as these free activities, visitors can enjoy the Museum’s exhibitions also included as part of their standard admission ticket.
- Legacies: London Transport’s Caribbean Workforce, celebrates the contribution people of Caribbean heritage have made to transport and British culture more widely 🇬🇧
- Hidden London: the Exhibition takes visitors on an immersive journey to some of London’s most secret and abandoned spaces and stations 😯
A visit to the Museum would not be complete without heading to Canteen for a chocolate roundel cappuccino ☕️ or cupcake, plus a pit-stop in the shop is a must, pick up that special transport-related gift.
