Bit of a surprise that the Bond cars are on show however the wife and kids enjoyed the experience as well. Well worth a visit to see some iconic cars and vehicles.

There is a charge for this museum (children are free) but the ticket is valid for a year, so you can return as you like. There is plenty for adults and lots for children to play on, pretend to drive etc and keep them occupied for a couple of hours.

I knew the Transport Museum was going to be awesome when I got on the elevator and it turned into a time machine counting back the years to the start of the museum's displays. I spent about three hours walking through the fun and interactive displays and felt I knew a great deal more about the transportation in London has... More

We were hesitant to go as this wasn't in the list of must-go in travel books. However, we read that it is very educational and kids would love it. So off we went. It is a museum with LIFE-SIZE trains and buses! And most of them were actual buses and trains used, not replicates. There were so many activities for... More

Staying in Covent Garden

Neighborhood Profile
Covent Garden
Whether you're headed here to check out the multitude of shops, theaters, cafes, pubs, and restaurants, or simply to be among the multitude of people who pass through this pretty part of town, you'll love soaking up the festive and historic atmosphere in and around Covent Garden. Even if you don't have tickets to the opera or a show at one of the many famous theaters here, don't be surprised if find yourself captivated by some impromptu act of a street performer wowing the crowds in Covent Garden's Piazza. If you do have tickets, you'll be pleased to note that many of the local eateries accommodate theatergoers with prix fixe menus, early dinners, and later than usual opening hours.
