Situated right in the centre of London, the London Transport Museum is a must-visit if you’re in the capital, exploring 200 years of London Transport history. The closest railway stations are London Charing Cross and London Waterloo. From Charing Cross, simply mosey down the Strand and turn left onto Burleigh Street – taking less than ten minutes. From Waterloo station, cross Waterloo Bridge and continue onto Wellington Street, turning left when you hit Tavistock Street to reach the museum. The museum will be well-signposted, and you can always consult one of the handy street maps if you’re stuck!
The London Transport Museum is also surrounded by London underground stations – Covent Garden, Leicester Square, Charing Cross and Temple – so you can arrive into any major London terminus, hop on the Tube and be at the museum in minutes.
