      The single room I stayed in was comfortable and clean. Yes, it was tiny, but I only wanted it for an overnight sleep. I've stayed here before and will do so again....

      Staffs are very friendly. I requested to stay up to 3 pm, and they allowed me (as next customer hadn't come yet).

London Transport Museum

The London Transport Museum, or LT Museum as it is also know is a museum dedicated to the heritage of transport in London. Situated in Covent Garden in London, the month of November in 2007 saw the museum re-open to the public after a two year, £22 million refurbishment.

One of the most important cities in the World, London's success owes a lot to the transport system that developed alongside the Capital in the 19th and 20th centuries, and today as one of the most visited cities in the World it still relies heavily on this transport system. London was also home to the World's first underground railway, the London Underground.

With collections that reflect all aspects of the history of public transport in London from the 1800's to the present day, items range from uniform buttons to complete Tube trains, busses and trams. With over 1,200 exhibits the London Transport Museum contains the most comprehensive collection of its type anywhere in the world.

The huge collection is made up mainly of a variety of vehicles, signs, photographs, posters, drawings, uniforms and architectural material. However, the social history of transport, and artefacts and exhibits related to the operation and marketing of passenger services and the impact that the developing transport network has had on the city and its population are also documented. Computer-generated projections, touch-screen displays, ingenious installations and tube-train simulators offer a different and more modern informative experience and appeal particularly to children.

Items that are not on display at the London Transport Museum in Covent Garden are held in The Museum Depot at Acton, London. Here there are over 370,000 items of all types, including many original works of art used for the Museum's celebrated poster collection, vehicles, signs, models, photographs, engineering drawings, uniforms and a complete 1938 stock tube train. Regular open weekend events are held here.
