Every year on The Daily Constitutional, as the high season for visitors to London hots up, I spend August sharing a few archive posts. This year I'm reposting recommendations from our If You Do One Other Thing In London slot (a regular feature of our Saturday London Spy posts) and updated posts from the Best Museums In London series, in which the London Walks guides shared their best London museum tips. 

If theres' a London Walks tour starting or ending nearby I'll add the details at the bottom of each post. I hope you find these posts helpful over the course of the summer.

Keep in touch - I'm not going into hiding! - I'll be posting throughout August and, of course, I'll see many of you "out there" on London Walks tours. All of our regular features – and some new ones, too – will return in September.

A.S-G London, August 2016
Does every little boy want to be an engine driver? At the Transport Museum in Covent Garden it seems like every little girl is pretty keen, too. 
The driver’s seat on the double decker bus was a big draw, as was the tube driver simulator where the aim is to guide your Jubilee Line train safely into the station and align the doors of the train with those on the platform. MUCH harder than it looks!
I particularly loved the faces of the grown-ups as they watched the kids drive the bus and the train. Was that a wistful look? Was it just plain jealousy?
The London Transport Museum is one of London’s most effortless exhibitions. Without seeming to break much of a sweat, it caters to everyone. It is both a fascinating look at the history of how we have gotten around London this past century-and-a-half, and a living fun park for kids.
The current special exhibition is the excellent Designology, making us take a fresh look at our transport system from a design perspective.
