The Transport Museum in London

Nobody escapes that London is one of the largest tourist destinations in the world and that there are many places that you can visit. In fact, you would need several weeks, or months, to be able to visit the entire city and not miss anything. In addition, with low-cost companies you can get there in a couple of hours and for very little money, you just need to find a cheap hotel and that’s it! Today I want to recommend a museum that I loved, so I hope that if you follow my advice you will like it too. It is the Museum of Transport for London (London Transport Museum).

It is in Covent Garden , a place where you also have a great market and many tourist attractions, so you can spend a whole day there that will have a lot to see. The museum preserves and explains to you all the heritage of the transport sector in London. In the building where it is there was originally a fruit market, and in 1980 the museum was located. It has several rooms where you can see different cars and all kinds of motorized vehicles from the late 19th and 20th centuries . Trams, rail vehicles, trolleybuses and, of course, buses, undoubtedly the best-known transport in the city.

In one of the interactive rooms you can discover how trains have evolved from 1870 to the modern models that exist today. In addition, each room has its own “something” special, like some in which it seems that you are traveling to old London with photographs, posters, local curiosities and historical films. Among some of his exhibitions you can see "the world’s first tube", "the future of transport", "London transport in the 20s and 30s", "London transport icons" or "Victorian London transport".

Of course, there is also a shop where you can buy replicas of many of the vehicles that you will see in the museum. There is also a cafeteria, so it is very complete. The museum’s hours are from Saturday to Thursday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Friday from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m.
