Cool Britannia: London Bus Museum

The London Bus Museum – 100 years of Bus History under one roof

If you don’t like double-deck buses, you probably don’t like puppies.

The London Bus Museum houses the world’s largest collection of historic London buses, covering 100 years of development – from the horse-drawn buses of the 1870s to the driver-operated, rear-engined 70-seaters of the 1970s.

The London Bus Museum houses a remarkable collection of around 35 buses and coaches, the largest collection of working historic London buses in the world. About two thirds are owned by the Trust and the remainder by individual members. Some buses have been fully restored and have won many awards, while others will be restored in the restoration workshops in the new building.

The vehicles are all of London origin and date from about 1875 to 1979 and are arranged in a timeline from the early horse bus to more modern buses similar to those on London’s streets today. Items of street furniture and other artefacts and memorabilia related to bus operations in London are also on display, from uniforms to ticket machines, medals, signs and examples of works of art for which London Transport received many awards.

London Bus Museum is located on the Brooklands site between Weybridge and Byfleet in Surrey and shares a common visitor entrance with Brooklands Museum. One entry ticket covers admission to both museums.
