Transport Museum hotels
The Transport Museum of London was established in 1980, but the main museum building in Covent Garden dates back to 1871 when this stately Victorian structure was a flower market. The museum's collections span the 19th and 20th centuries and include marketing materials, furniture, and art as well as equipment and large vehicles. The museum houses a large library with unique collections dedicated to transportation history, design and architecture, business, and legislation materials. One can conduct research in books, journals, and magazines available to the public or schedule an appointment to view the special private collections.
- Browse the Transport Museum's many fascinating and diverse exhibits that explore the history and technology of the city's transportation networks as well as posters, maps, and illustrations inspired by them.
- Play and learn with interactive exhibits for kids like the miniature London display, tot-sized trains, buses, tubes, and taxis, and the special Interchange gallery for children aged seven to eleven.
- Enjoy special exhibitions and events at the Depot, a satellite storage and display space where one can see more than 370,000 antique and vintage pieces, including London transport uniforms, posters, engineering schematics, locomotives, trams, tube trains, and trolleybuses.
The Covent Garden tube and the Charing Cross rail stations are within walking distance of the main entrance to the London Transport Museum. The Piccadilly Line is the prominent tube route for this neighbourhood and Acton, where the Transport Museum’s Depot annex is located. Piccadilly Line also happens to be one of the least expensive routes to Heathrow International Airport. Heathrow Airport is seventeen kilometres from the museum via the M4 and A4 motorways, but with so many convenient public transport options like the underground, buses, and trams, there is really no need for a car.
