London Bus

LONDON’S ICONIC TRANSPORT

A good way to arrive at the market if coming from areas not serviced by the underground. A pleasant 3 minute-walk down to the market areas.

If you love public transport, this is the museum for you. A small museum in the central part of London, Covent Garden, was inaugurated in 1980 and is considered to be the most important museum in the world with the most comprehensive vehicle repository and historical documents on the evolution of public transport across Europe.

The Museum of Transport of London is the best museum for children under the age of 7. The truth is that this museum is a great museum for all ages, but well structured for children.

It speaks very accurately about the chronological development of public transport in London and tells us about the history of the subway, trams and buses. There are many historic vehicles on which you can climb. Particularly interesting is the Metropolitan Train Simulator and the educational trail with the stamps on the boards. A lot of information on the history of public transport in London from the beginning of the 19th century to the present.

There are also two super play areas for children. One for boys and one for children under 7 years. There is a small cafe, a picnic area and a large shop that has some quality, lots of posters and some of the souvenirs of traditional museums.

Children under 17 enter free while adults pay £18.00. Open 10-6 daily.

 

Sweeney Todd

The tale of Sweeney Todd, a barber who murdered and then cooked his victims into pies during the late 1700s, is one of the most macabre and sinister to have ever come out of London.

Sea Life London Aquarium

Visitors are immersed in an underwater world when they walk through the London Aquarium’s Shark Reef Encounter exhibit. 16 sharks swim throughout the three-floor exhibit, which also features heads from Easter Island. At the interactive Shark Academy, visitors can feel actual shark skin and learn about these fascinating creatures.

Tower Bridge

The first bridge ever built over the Thames was the London Bridge. As the city of London grew over the years, more bridges were built, but always to the west of London Bridge. The area east of the bridge was a busy port area.
