Learn about the heritage of the London Underground and other modes of city transit at London Transport Museum. Wander around the displays to discover what public transportation was like in the 19th century and see how it changed as suburbs grew outside the city. Check out the restored Metropolitan Railway Jubilee Carriage No. 353, a first-class city train carriage that dates back to 1892. Look at over 80 vehicles, such as buses, trams, and taxis, and view posters that the city transportation system designed and commissioned over a period of 100 years. For food or refreshments, stop by the on-site Upper Deck cafe and bar.

  • My son, who is a transportation fan, and I came here on our vacation in London. He knows the Tube map better than most people who live here. We both loved it. I like how they take you from the very beginnings of London public transport to the current day. There is a good exhibit on how design influences everything TFL does. Admission is good for a year. Unfortunately I don't think we will be coming back to London anytime soon as a family trip to Europe from California is a very expensive trip!
  • The best museum for transportation fans, especially since the London Underground is the world's oldest subway system. Amazing. The layout is modern, and the exhibits were refreshing, unqiue, interactive and accurately present the history of transportation in London.
  • Live down in kent. Went up london transport museum years ago and very great go see old london buses.
  • Larger and more interesting than expected. Tells the story of how transport in London has changed over the years. Shop has a good selection of products. Well worth a visit for all ages.
  • Fewer exhibits than I was expecting, but what there is is very well done. Songs and stories for under fives was a great idea and well run, and we enjoyed the stamp trail, too. The design exhibition was fantastic.
