The London Transport Museum is housed in the old Covent Garden Flower Market, on the east-side of the piazza.
History of London Transport
The museum has over 350,000 travel exhibits from the last 200 years, including bus, trains, trams and tubes. It details everything from tube-train simulators to horse-drawn carriages. The exhibits are all fully interactive, so your kids can jump in the taxis and climb aboard the buses. You can even have a go as a train station announcer!
As well as the vehicles, the museum also has a broad range of pictures, posters, photos and maps of the capital. You can also check out their uniforms and other equipment.
