London Transport Museum is one of the main visitor attractions in Covent Garden Piazza. Bringing to life the history of London’s public transport network — its buses, trains, tubes and taxis, from the 19th century to the present day, the Museum appeals to young people and adults alike. With an emphasis on interactivity, the exhibits range from impressive historic vehicles to striking examples of the transport network’s famous poster art and graphic design.
Transport has played a defining role in the evolution of London’s unique identity. From the days of sedan chairs and horse-drawn omnibuses through to the world’s first underground railway and the creation of iconic designs such as the roundel and Tube map, the Museum’s colourful displays offer fascinating insights into how London works.
The lively exhibitions explore over 200 years of history and reveal compelling stories about the influence transport has on London’s society and culture, and how our travel experiences might change in the future. At the heart of the story are the people that have kept London moving over the centuries – Victorian pioneers, the avant-garde designers of the early 20th century and the many thousands of transport workers, including those recruited from overseas during the 1950s and 1960s.
