You can ride on the Routemas­ter that ap­pears in this ar­ti­cle, as well as ex­plore sev­eral other ex­am­ples of the breed, at the Lon­don Bus Mu­seum, based at Brook­lands. Thanks to Roger Stagg, Alan Eg­gle­ton and ev­ery­one at the mu­seum for all their help.

Orig­i­nally called the Cob­ham Bus Mu­seum, a move to pur­pose-built premises at Brook­lands took place in 2011. The Lon­don Bus Mu­seum houses the world’s largest dis­play of work­ing Lon­don buses, from 1875 to the 1990s, as well as vast amounts of mem­o­ra­bilia.

Don’t miss Lon­don Bus Mu­seum’s Spring Gath­er­ing at Brook­lands on 19 April 2015, when there’s the chance to ride on RML 2760.

Brook­lands Mu­seum also hosts a wide range of events. In­cor­po­rat­ing the orig­i­nal build­ings and even some of the bank­ing from the leg­endary pre-WW2 race cir­cuit, the mu­seum houses a unique col­lec­tion of cars and air­craft, many with Brook­lands con­nec­tions.
