The stores are a permanent home to one of the world’s finest and most comprehensive collections of transport posters and artworks. Visitors can immerse themselves in the rich design heritage of London’s transport, explore some of the 7,000 posters that London Transport commissioned and get close to original artworks that are rarely seen by the public.
Over 100 years ago Frank Pick commissioned the first graphic poster (No need to ask a P’liceman, by John Hassall, 1908) for London Underground. Under his guidance London Transport went on to commission works from some of the world’s best known artists including Man Ray, Abram Games and Edward McKnight Kauffer some of which will be seen during the tour. Some are also on display in the Museum, Covent Garden.
In groups no larger than 10, visitors will be guided through a century of art and design. Tours last approximately 75 minutes and include a Q & A session.
