London Transport Museum
The London Transport Museum explores the various modes of travel enjoyed by the capital’s residents over 200 years, with prime examples of historic vehicles that immediately take you back in history. The Museum has a particularly strong focus on heritage, and its collections include original artworks and posters deployed to promote the city’s transports. Under Frank Pick, the modern graphic poster rose to particularly stellar heights, and here you’ll find his iconic ads for the early London Underground. The exhibits are laid out chronologically, so as you make your way, you can smile at a horse-drawn bus in the Victorian gallery, admire an early 20th century tram, or chart the passage from a sedan chair to the modern-day taxi.
