Visited on Wednesday 21st July 2021 as part of a day out to Brooklands Transport Museum & Mercedes World with friends. Located inside the Brooklands Museum entry to Brooklands gets you entry to this additional but separate Museum. Located inside a big canvas structure there are many many buses of various types/ages arranged in a creative fashion enabling viewing access to all, as well as the history of the buses in general. Some buses you can access, but due to COVID, the access was limited on our visit. There is an excellent gift shop and for £3 pp an old Routemaster was giving 30 min bus rides around Weybridge. This bus ride is just that. It is not a tour or has any guide, so if you have the time just sit back and enjoy the ride.

Museum free to enter within Brooklands museum. Contains a variety of London buses through the ages. Some can be boarded. Also a gift shop where tickets can be purchased for £2 for a 30 min bus ride on a heritage bus round the local area. Last tour was at 3pm on day we visited. Worth doing bus ride as well as seeing exhibits in museum. Perhaps degree of interest in this museum is proportional to your interest in busses, especially London busses? Unless I missed it, there were no trolley busses only motor ones.

Last year we went on a vintage bus ride organised by this museum so we decided to come and have a look whilst visiting Brooklands. There are many beautiful vehicles to see although most you can't get into. Nevertheless it is wonderful to take a trip down memory lane and see so many beautifully restored vehicles.

We visited as part of our weekend stay at Brooklands Hotel.

Admission to the museum was 'free' through purchasing a ticket to Brooklands museum. We were not impressed with being unable to go onto many buses, as you couldn't compare the interior of them all. Looking at the outsides of the buses was good, but a bus is a bus. The museum itself is relatively small with lots of buses close together. The best part of the museum, in my opinion, was the gift shop! Perhaps good for a bus enthusiast, but unfortunately, not for me. I think children would get bored very quickly.

This museum is part of the much larger Brooklands Museum. It has recently had a major refurbishment and was completely different to my first visit, and mush improved. As part of our visit we took advantage of one of their off-site bus rides on a former London Transport 'RT' bus, which was most enjoyable. These attract an extra charge, but it is modest and well worth the price paid.

London Bus Museum is within the Brooklands Museum. Admission to the latter includes admission to the former. Parking is free.

We spent most of our day visiting the automotive and aviation exhibits of Brooklands, and really just strolled through the Bus Museum. I am sure this would be fascinating for any bus or coach enthusiast. We would have loved to take a £2 for 30 minutes bus ride, but did not have enough time.

This museum is a trip down memory lane for me as I grew up in London. We didn't have a car so London Transport and Green Line buses were my regular ride. The museum exhibits date back to horse drawn buses, through early motor buses with external stairs, to the iconic red RT buses and Routemasters. There is also an example of a trolley bus. I loved travelling on those back in the day, so it was wonderful to see one again.

Sadly with Covid-19 restrictions entry to the buses is not currently possible. Even so this is a very well thought out display of historic London buses. There's also a small souvenir shop selling books, models, toys and other bus related items.

Britain not only gave the world its first underground but also the iconic red double decker Routemaster. Its taken for granted now for sure but from a simple horse drawn carriage to steam, engine and now electric, it really helps people who don't or can't afford to have cars.

You wouldn't wanna drive in a narrow lane city like London in your own car especially after the 24/7 ULEZ and congestion charge. Enter the new red double-decker. Hop on one of the new hybrid or electric ''green'' red buses that are not only super silent but comfortable too. The new design is very modern and based on plane/train style. Every seat has a USB socket for charging and don't worry about the diesel fumes because they're environment friendly and might even be quieter than your car.

Really lovely relaxed day out, at the Spring event. Very enjoyable circular bus trip, to Weybridge and back. Good assortment of visiting buses. Many stalls selling models, pictures, books, and memorabilia.

The actual museum is well laid out, and interactive for kiddies.

One particular highlight for my son, was the enthusiastic, friendly, and funny entertainment provided by Professor Crump!

So good to see a great collection of London busses, of particular interest to me were those dating back to the 1950's and 1960's. There is a really good and comprehensive history here and it was good to follow the development of the London bus. Plenty of other bus service related exhibits as well. Really well worth the visit.
