If you geek out on all things transport then you won’t want to miss the London Transport Museum Depot’s first ever summer season. The Depot, which is normally only open to the public for a select few days a year, is throwing open the doors for a ten day stretch this August.
The Depot is home to over 320,000 transport-related artefacts, so there’s plenty to explore – there’s even a family-friendly trail of vehicles that includes the likes of a Victorian horse drawn bus from 1881 and an Art Deco Stock Tube train from 1938. The London Transport Miniature Railway will also be open so you’ll be able to take a ride on models of vintage trains used on the Metropolitan Line between the 1920s and 1960s.
The Depot will have new safety measures in place, including one-way systems, PPE for staff and enhanced cleaning regimes, and you’ll need to book timed tickets in advance, with 1/3 off for local residents in Ealing, Hounslow and Hillingdon.
