Celebrate the Platinum Jubilee with London Transport Museum

The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee coincides with the opening of the capital’s newest railway, the Elizabeth line. The London Transport Museum will host a series of Elizabeth Line themed activities to celebrate this historic occasion.

From Thursday 2 to Sunday 5 June, children visiting London Transport Museum in Covent Garden will be given a colourful roundel adorned paper crown to mark the royal occasion and in the Museum’s café Canteen, guests can enjoy a special Jubilee cream tea and Victoria sponge cake, as well as colour-changing Elizabeth line inspired lemonade or cocktail.

During a visit to London Transport Museum, people can see vehicles and objects from 200 years of London’s history, including the capital’s iconic red Routemaster bus which first entered service in 1954, the year after the Queen’s coronation.

Visitors can also marvel at how the Tube map has evolved to the present day in an updated digital map display which includes the new Elizabeth line railway, learn to ‘drive’ an Elizabeth line train in the Future Engineers gallery and discover the secrets of disused stations that lie beneath the city’s streets in the award-winning Hidden London exhibition in the Global Gallery.

Adult tickets to visit London Transport Museum cost £21 and offer free return entry for a whole year (children go free).
