The Acton Depot, where the London Transport Museum stores most of its trains, buses and ephemera is having a week-long Half-Term opening for families.

The Acton Depot is a massive shed of a space packed with old trains, a collection of old buses and trolleybuses, and a huge collection of old kit from tube stations.

Normally open a few weekends a year, for May Half-Term, the depot will be open most of the week for a family event. A range of challenges for families are being created and there’s a special spot the colour challenge for the youngest members of the family.

The  Miniature Railway will be in action, and seating outdoors for a coffee and light lunch from Mini Bean Coffee.

All children will receive a free special activity pack to enjoy during and after their visit.

This website has been running now for over a decade, and while advertising revenue contributes to funding the website, it doesn't cover the costs. That is why I have set up a facility with DonorBox where you can contribute to the costs of the website and time invested in writing and research for the news articles.

It's very similar to the way The Guardian and many smaller websites are now seeking to generate an income in the face of rising costs and declining advertising.

Whether it's a one-off donation or a regular giver, every additional support goes a long way to covering the running costs of this website, and keeping you regularly topped up doses of Londony news and facts.

If you like what you read on here, then please support the website here.

Thank you
