How to Get There

It’s best to use public transit instead of driving, as the museum is within the London Congestion Charge zone and doesn’t have a parking lot. The two exhibition spaces are located across the road from one another, about a 10-minute walk from Farringdon, King’s Cross St. Pancras, Russell Square, and Chancery Lane stations. Buses 17, 46, and 341 also serve the area.

London’s Top Picks for Transport Enthusiasts

Whether you’re an avid railway historian or parent to a transport-crazy toddler, London offers plenty of options. After riding the Mail Rail, take the Piccadilly line south to the London Transport Museum, where around 450,000 artifacts reveal the history of the capital’s travel network; travel up the Thames to see HMS Belfast, a retired warship; or head to nearby King’s Cross railway station, in search of the famous Platform 9 ¾.
