I'll just start with how disappointed I was that the tube simulator wasn't there. I'm not sure what they're doing with the area but as I had spent the morning excitedly telling my niece how much she'd enjoy pretending to the drive a tube, we...More
At £17.50 per adult I would expect a better curated display and better facilities. The museum is in a cavernous space and very noisy. Noise from the children's activity area spreads throughout and amongst the exhibits are competing audios which are either loud and intrusive...More
Thee unique opportunity to climb aboard a vintage double decker and view a horse drawn double decker bus, an underground car and a host of other transport exhibits is the treat that marks the London Transport Museum adjacent to Covent Gardens. My 2 year old...More
I can only say to visit this museum if seriously interested in having a look at two taxis a few buses and trams.
There was a kids activity section! Noisy and just like a creche for mums whilst dads looked around . Some exhibits were...More
Great museum with lots of interactive things with a free cloakroom so that you are not carrying unnecessary baggage.
I particularly liked the layout which is easy to get around and ensures you don't miss out on anything and the card for stamping.
This museum is a good overview of the development of transport within London and if you want somewhere that your kids can look at old trains and buses then it's ideal and very centrally located right in Covent Garden.
If you're a train or bus...More

Being the son of a London Transport Bus Driver (my Dad drove buses during the Blitz!), I was obviously drawn to the exhibits on show here, especially those from WW2.
Highly recommended, assuming you have an interest in transport, of course...
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.
