A summer like no other!
We're excited to be throwing the doors open to our Depot this August for 10 days of summer family fun.
The Depot houses most of London Transport Museum’s extensive collection – over 320,000 artefacts from the Capital’s transport history. The new summer season has been designed especially for families, giving them the chance to explore this rarely seen transport treasure trove during the summer holidays after months in lockdown.
A family-friendly trail will take people on a journey through the Depot to discover the stories of historic vehicles which served passengers over the last 200 years, including a yellow Victorian horse drawn ‘garden seat’ bus dating from 1881 to a shiny red 1938 Stock Tube train filled with stylish Art Deco touches.
Included in the children's ticket price is a a special, sealed pack including a fun craft kit to make during your visit and a take-home activity to support their learning in fun and curious ways.
Plus, don't forget to end your day with a ride on the London Transport Miniature Railway! Tickets to ride on the Miniature Railway will be available to purchase separately on the day using contactless payments.
The Depot will be open for our summer season on Wednesday 19 August - Sunday 23 August and Wednesday 26 August - Sunday 30 August from 11:00 to 18:00 each day. Last entry at 16:00.
Timed tickets will be available to purchase each day and must be booked in advance online.
