From Tottenham to the trenches

Date: 23 October 2016 until 26 March 2017
Location: Bruce Castle Museum, Haringey

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.
