Transport for London and the London Transport Museum celebrated 'THE YEAR OF THE BUS'. We are very proud that our children's book has been endorsed by Transport for London. Bradley the Bus also celebrated it's first anniversary at the London Transport Museum in Covent Garden. The anniversary was on the 11th August 2013 and the book was launched during the Olympics at Stratford Library. We are planning lots of events to celebrate the 'Year of the Bus' so please visit our Facebook page /Bradley_the_Bus.
Images of our visit to the museum which feature author Inderjit Puaar, with a number 11 Routemaster bus, can be viewed on the Facebook page /Bradley_the_Bus. The book is available to buy in the Museum shop and we are very grateful to Transport for London for endorsing the book and supporting us.
A trip to the London Transport Museum is an ideal trip to keep the children entertained. Please see below for general information about the London Transport Museum. If you would like more information please visit www.ltmuseum.co.uk
"By conserving and explaining the Capital city's transport heritage, London Transport Museum offers people an understanding of the Capital's past development and engages them in the debate about its future. We adopt the highest standards of curatorship and communication, and aim to be the world's leading museum of urban transport.
London Transport Museum's collection originated in the 1920s, when the London General Omnibus Company decided to preserve two Victorian horse buses and an early motorbus for future generations. The Museum of British Transport opened in an old bus garage in Clapham, south London, during the 1960s, before moving to Syon Park in west London in 1973 as the London Transport Collection.
In 1980, the public displays moved again, this time to occupy the Flower Market building in Covent Garden as the London Transport Museum. In 2002, London Transport became Transport for London and, to reflect this, the Museum changed its name to London's Transport Museum. On 28 March 2005, we celebrated 25 years of welcoming visitors in Covent Garden."
