The London Transport Museum’s depot is throwing open its doors for visitors to see its many historical artefacts and objects that tell the story of London and its transport network over the past 220 years.

Visitors to the ‘Act-on It’ Depot Open Days can also explore London Transport Museum’s extensive collection of historic vehicles including Tube trains, buses, trolleybuses and trams. For the first time, the Museum’s iconic RM1 Routemaster, built in 1954, will be displayed alongside one of London’s most revolutionary buses, the ADL/BYD Enviro 400 Electric, the bus from route 63.

Route 63 buses, taking passengers between Kings Cross and Honor Oak, have a skylight on the upper deck, larger rear window, USB chargers and larger wheelchair and buggy area, helping to improve accessibility for people travelling around London. Powered by a 382 kilowatt battery pack technology, these Abellio buses are helping to lower emissions and create a greener future for the city and its residents. Knowledgeable volunteers and real-world STEM Ambassador engineers from Abellio will be on hand to talk about the latest technology as visitors take a peek under the hood to discover how these brand new buses really work.

No visit to the Depot would be complete without jumping aboard the London Transport Miniature Railway. The miniature railway is open all weekend. Tickets cost £1 per person and tickets are available to purchase in person on the day of your visit.

The London Transport Museum Depot shop will be open offering exclusive gifts and souvenirs, from moquette pattern socks, scarves and cushions, to framed posters, limited-edition prints and authentic Underground signs.

Timed tickets to visit the London Transport Museum Depot ‘Act-on It’ Open Days must be booked in advance online.
