We were impressed not only with the fact then when you purchase a ticket for entrance (£17 per adult / Children under 17 free) that this ticket is then valid for a whole year. There's also a free cost/baggage storage area to leave your items and collect when your done. A nice touch having the ticket punches for the children... More

I used to come here a lot when my now 6 year old was about 2-3. Today I brought my 2.5 year old and he enjoyed it every bit as his older brother did. It's been over three years since I came and it's much the same as before. They have added a bigger play area though which my son... More

My husband and I had been looking forward to visiting the London transport museum but felt it was very over priced for what there was to see. We saw all of it in less than an hour and at £35 for the both of us this wasn't good value for money. Plus even though it was term time there were... More

When we first arrived at the museum there was a very long queue waiting for entry so we had a coffee at a nearby restaurant and waited until it subsided. We last visited the museum some 20 years ago and thought we would see what had changed - it gives a terrific overview of the development of London Transport and... More

This museum is a nice place to visit as it has some items that you might not be able to find anywhere in London! If you are a model collector, then you will Love this museum! It also offers some interesting photo opportunities as well. If you like to see some interesting items and get very unique London souvenirs, then... More

I was quiet skeptical at first but my boyfriend was determined to go and I got dragged alone. It turned out to be a pretty good day. The exhibitions are interactive and it is fun for everyone...kids, families, couples! Although you have to pay, it is quite reasonably priced and your ticket can be valid for a year.

All posters displayed on London Underground can be purchased in the shop. SHUT UP AND TAKE MY MONEY.

We visited the London transport museum on a very wet Sunday in January 2017. We wanted a interactive museum that would be good fun for our 4 year old. It was our first trip to London since we had our boy and we'd had a busy few days showing him the sights. We wanted a day where he could play... More

Had a great visit with loads of fun things to do. Very much recommended. Watch the counter in the lift as you rise to the second floor.

If you are looking for a quiet place to learn about the different types of transportation London has had then this probably isn't for you. It is a family-oriented museum as they had a lot of areas for kids. We went late and there were kids running around all over the place. However, the information on the displays was good,... 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.
