As part of its celebration of the 150th anniversary of the London Underground, the London Transport Museum is bringing exhibitions about the history of the tube and the Metropolitan Line to the Quainton venue.

Attractions will include rides in vintage carriages pulled by Victorian steam locomotives, family activities, talks, films and a Metroland trail to follow. In the Visitor Centre, watch two working O-Gauge tin model railway layouts of goods trains in London and the Metropolitan Line as far as Quainton Road.

Visitors will be able to travel to the railway centre on a free vintage bus from Aylesbury Vale Parkway Station.
