By car to junction 10 of the M25 and then the A3/A245 following signs to Mercedes-Benz World/Brooklands Museum, post-code for satnavs: KT13 0SL.

Wife and I spent a very pleasant and fascinating two hours looking at old London buses, not at all what I'd thought I'd like! The wonder is the dedicated team which, over the decades, has rescued abandoned wrecks and restored them to pristine working condition,...More

Really interesting exhibits, from horse drawn buses to more modern. Experience an air raid and see what happened to a bus that was involved in one. Volunteers have great tales to tell and are very knowledgeable.

As the Brooklands Museum and London bus museum are out of oyster zones, you will have to buy a single or return ticket out of Victoria or Waterloo. Hope this helped.
