Open Doors – Get into Construction

Crossrail Careers Afternoon at London Transport Museum

Date: Thursday 30 March 2017
Time: 13:00 - 17:00

Crossrail is the biggest construction project in Europe and is one of the largest single infrastructure investments undertaken in the UK. We are managing and delivering a multiple worksite programme with construction works running concurrently across the whole route. Over 100,000 hours have been worked on the project at over 40 construction sites.

The Open Doors events are a perfect opportunity for those interested in the construction industry, to visit us and learn about the Crossrail story first hand. We are offering a chance to book a free one hour slot to speak to a range of Crossrail staff from across the project, and career advisors about careers in construction. Please be advised that spaces are very limited, so book early to avoid disappointment.

To book your free place at our Crossrail Careers event please contact the London Transport Museum bookings team on[email protected] or call 020 7565 7298. Please note that under 18s must be accompanied by a responsible adult.  

This event is part of the ‘Open Doors – Get into Construction’ event taking place at construction sites across England, Scotland and Wales. For further information go to:

From Tottenham to the trenches

Date: 23 October 2016 until 26 March 2017

During 2016 the Museum has worked with three teams of young volunteers; a research team, an exhibition team and an outreach team. The exhibition they have co-curated, From Tottenham to the trenches, marks the centenary of the Battle of the Somme and uncovers the story of London buses and the lives of local people from Tottenham who were affected by the First World War.

Find out more about the exhibition on the Bruce Castle Museum website

London Transport Museum would like to thank all those who have made this exhibition possible. In particular, we are grateful to the Heritage Lottery Fund and the London Transport Museum Friends for funding the Battle Bus project. Above image created by students from Northumberland Park Community School.

Epping and Ongar Railway

Step back in time with Epping and Ongar Railway (EOR) and experience the romance of travel in bygone times. EOR are both the longest heritage railway in Essex and the closest to London, easily accessible via the tube network. Their vintage buses start from the front door of Epping and Shenfield stations, whisking you back in time to period stations, with heritage steam and diesel hauled trains.
