Those looking for a unique London attraction on their trip to the capital should consider stopping by the London Transport Museum's Behind The Scene Tour.
Running regularly from January 27th 2012, visitors can take part in a guided tour through a collection spanning 370,000 objects and more than a 100 years of rail and road vehicles.
These tours are conducted in groups of ten in order to maximise contact and to make sure that attendees get full access to the collection.
In addition to the working museum store, there are also authentic bus and rail sheds and old signs, ceramic tiles, ephemera and ticket machines to be explored by transport fans.
Fan of art may also want to attend the site's Art and Poster Tours, where they will get the opportunity to explore some of the 7,000 posters commissioned by the organisation, including pieces by Man Ray, Abraham Games and Edward McKnight Kauffer.
Those visiting the London attraction will also be able to enjoy food and drink at the museum's Upper Deck cafe and bar, which features a stylish interior modelled on the moquette fabric designs used on the Northern Line in the 1930s.
