2FOR1 on top transport attractions
Published 09/01/2017 by Pinar
Whether you love the open road, the thrill of a train track or airborne adventures, we’ve got some 2FOR1 offers on transport attractions that will get your motor running.
London Transport Museum
Housed in the Flower Market Building in Covent Garden, the museum’s fascinating exhibits and stories reveal the enormous influence transport has had on London’s society, culture and identity in the last 200 years - from the time of the sedan chair to modern-day Tube and train travel. And of course there are plenty of buttons to push, levers to pull and vehicles to clamber over - from Tube trains to taxis.
London Motor Museum
This diverse motor museum has more than 200 vehicles to gawp at and boasts treasures such as the 1989 Batmobile and some of the world's fastest cars. There are movie cars, classic cars, racing cars plus plenty more. Even the café has wheels - it’s a double decker bus that’s been turned into an American diner. The museum is in Hayes - about a 20-minute train ride from Paddington station.
If you or your kids love planes then here’s a chance to fly a Red Arrows jet - without the niggling worry of imminent death. The Red Arrows theatre experience at the Science Museum in London uses 3D footage and flight simulator motion technology to get you feeling like you’re really in the cockpit. Entry to the Science Museum is free but get the 2FOR1 discount on Red Arrows tickets.
Or if you fancy yourself as more of a military pilot, then indulge your need for adrenaline by flying in an RAF Typhoon jet. The Science Museum's flight simulator will take you on an action-packed flight, demonstrating the aircraft’s power. And you cannot physically crash it. Bonus.
London Canal Museum
Housed in an attractive 19th century canalside building, the London Canal Museum tells the story of London's canals: from the early days as important trade routes, to today's more leisurely pursuits. See inside a narrowboat cabin, work a boat through a model lock and peer down into a huge Victorian ice well.
