LONDON Transport Museum Depot in Acton Town, which is rarely open to the public, will host a 10-day family season for the first time from August 19-23 and 26-30, 11am to 6pm each day.

It houses 320,000 artefacts from the capital’s transport history. The new summer season has been designed especially for families, giving them the chance to explore this transport treasure trove after months in lockdown.

A trail will take people on a journey through the depot to discover the stories of historic vehicles which served passengers over the last 200 years.

Children will receive a sealed pack, including craft kit to make during the visit and a take-home activity.

The depot shop will be open and light refreshments will be available. 

Tickets and time slots can be booked online, with last entry at 4pm. Adult tickets cost £15 and are £7.50 for children aged 4-17. Children under three go free. 

People in Ealing, Hillingdon and Hounslow will enjoy a third off (£10 for adults and £5 for children) when booking.

Visitors who already have an annual pass for London Transport Museum in Covent Garden will also enjoy a third off.

The miniature railway will be open for service, with passengers able to travel on replica models of vintage Metropolitan Line trains
