London Transport Museum and Acton Depot are home to old and new forms of London transport. We have range of spectacular pieces that include modern and historic train carriages, tube prototypes, and buses dating back to the 1920’s.

The Museum Depot in Acton holds the majority of the Museum's collections which are not on display in the main Museum in Covent Garden. With over 370,000 items including original works of art, vehicles, signs, models, photographs, engineering drawings and uniforms. Together these form one of the most comprehensive records of urban transport anywhere in the world.
