It is really lovely to look at some of the old London transport system. I really enjoy the visit. Lots of lovely of lovely exhibits.

In this museum (in a very central location) you get an idea of London's (public) transport and how it has evolved over the many years. What I found particularly fun where the old tube carriages! As a Londoner, using the underground system daily, I really did wonder if the old carriages weren't more spacious than the ones we use today! You can get a 'stamp card' (I think its aimed at kids - but no less fun for adults!) and go around the museum getting a stamp at the different 'stations' / interesting points inside the museum. The evolution of the tube map is impressive! Going up and down the old buses is fun! :) Go check it out! (your ticket is valid for 1 year - great for Londoners, not so much for tourists..)
