London Transport Museum

Alongside the Covent Garden Piazza, the old vegetable, fruit and flower market now houses the London Transport Museum, which underwent a £22m refurbishment from 2005-07.

The museum is a treasure of vintage vehicles – buses, trams, trains – and offers a vivid reminder of an era before public transport was so sleekly uniform and actually had some character.

There’s also a fascinating film archive, containing old news footage hailing space-age advancements, like CCTV, automatic ticket machines and electronic barriers. As vignettes of London in a bygone age, they’re brilliantly evocative and nostalgic.

The museum hammers home the message that, as one of the world’s great cities, London has re-invented itself several times and will continue to do so. ts
