See the new exhibition at the London Transport Museum

From May 16th to March 8th 2015, the London Transport Museum will be hosting a new major exhibition entitled Goodbye Piccadilly, that will reveal the untold story of London’s Home Front during the First World War.

The new display will explore how drivers took their buses to the Front to support the war effort, how women advanced into the transport workforce for the first time and how Londoners came under deadly attack from the air as war arrived in the capital.

Presenting a unique view on the war and how it brought about social change, the exhibit will commemorate the acts of the city’s motor buses and their drivers.

The major themes of the display focus on aerial bombardment of the home, sheltering on the Tube and the role of women on London buses and the Underground.

Look out for the ‘Ole Bill’, a 1911 B-type bus, which was used on the Western Front and then refurbished as a permanent memorial to the role played by London buses in the First World War.

Visit the new showcase at the London Transport Museum on a hotel break in the capital.
