London bus Museum – Cobham Hall

The bus is the life-blood of London (and virtually every other city). It does not matter how rich or poor you are – the bus will take you to wherever you need to go. This is because cities are usually so vibrant and packed with people that it is usually inefficient to drive a car and much quicker to take the bueularly with modern ‘bus lanes’). However, buses evolved essentially as a mass transit device to move the working class cheaply around London – and in many ways serves as the life-blood of London – this is as true today as it was 150 years ago. The single and double-decker London buses are nothing less than modern versions of the faithful war-horse – a loyal beast of burden that never complains but which is always working. Finally, sparee a thought for the bus-drivers who drive 8, 10 and 12 hour shifts just to keep us on the move! We are Londoners – and our London Bus Museum is in the heart of Surrey (in the grounds of the Brooklands Museum).
