Christmas Shopping At London Transport Museum

The London Transport Museum isn't just one of our favourite museums, it also houses a rather special gift shop. The store stocks everything from unusual cushions to board games, all with a London theme. With hundreds of items to choose from and a central Covent Garden location, there are few places better stocked to help you with that difficult Secret Santa gift or unusual stocking-filler. Click through the gallery above to see some of the many items available, or browse the museum's online catalogue for more ideas.

Transport cushions: Designed to look like rail tickets, these novelty cushions come in five designs, including a ticket to Greenwich from 1 January 2000.
