Visit when at Brooklands Museum. Quite busy attraction...a bus lovers dream...not mine. If you aren't really 'into' buses save your energy. If you love old buses and their history...a must see.

We visited as part of the Brooklands Museum. So many buses from the age of horse drawn, through the war years, and up to date. The displays are very well presented and informative. Good family opportunity for a day out.

This museum is included within the Brooklands Museum. Very interesting to see buses evolve to what they are today. We were shown around by one of the volunteers who was very friendly and informative. Well worth a visit.

Very good day out, caters very well for families, helped by fabulous weather. London bus museum is the old Cobham bus museum.

The range and age of the exhibits is extensive and well laid out. Very nostalgic for us and perhaps astounding for younger visitors to see how it used to be - including horse drawn buses!
