All change!

Saturday and Sunday 28 and 29 September 2019
Adults £12; Concessions £10; Children and LTM Friends go free

All change please! The next stop is our Acton Depot. For our September Open Weekend, we’ve been inspired by the golden age of travel and London’s rich heritage of rail termini. Hear about the ambitious visions for these striking buildings, from the celebrated to the condemned. Discover how the creation of new rail routes transformed the lives of city dwellers and continue to play a significant role in how residents and visitors travel around London. We will also be heading out of the Capital into the countryside and overseas as we shine a spotlight on other termini and great rail routes that forged a path for travel as we know it today.
