"London Transport Museum" London Transport Museum Tip by Britannia2
London Transport Museum, London: 15 reviews and 27 photos
This museum shows the history of London's transport from the first Sedan carriages to how the city will have transportation 50 years from now. There are buses, trams, underground trains on display and they have been well restored to original condition.
There is a lot to see - the static displays have realistic models in them (see the photos below) and there are incidentals such as old tickets , posters (London Transport had beautiful posters especially in its early days), film shows and more.
There is always an additional exhibition and it was one based on suburbia when I was there - there is no additional charge.
The cloakroom is free and it makes sense to leave bags and coats here so they do not hinder you as you walk around the museum.
Toilets were clean and the cafe had a good selection of food and drink. The museum shop is well stocked and offers a mail order service.
Totally disabled friendly.
Admission was £8 and I stayed here for at least two hours.
