  • An amazing day out for the family. Lots to see. Interesting for the adults and lots that the children can climb in and out of. Very well thought through. The staff were really friendly, including several volunteers. All very accessible - we pushed the buggy all the way round with no trouble. There's also a great family bathroom which made toilet trips with little ones much easier than in most places.
  • I've always loved the London Transport Museum. It showcases so much of London's transport history all in the one spot. More so however is the brilliant transport museum shop! This place is heaven for anyone who loves everything and anything to do with London's transport scene. The staff are always too willing to geek out with you and revel in your splurge on random transport paraphernalia! You've been pleasantly warned! 😁
