London Transport Museum
London Transport Museum explores the story of London and its transport system over the last 200 years, highlighting the powerful link between transport and the growth of modern London, culture and society since 1800.
As well as exploring the past, the Museum looks at present-day transport developments and concepts for urban transportation in the future, which includes a contemporary collecting policy for the benefit of future generations.
LTM has supported the Cabbies’ Shelters project by providing access to their collections for learning and research purposes. Their curatorial, marketing, learning and volunteer teams have given invaluable support throughout the project.
The Cabmens' Shelter Fund
The Cabmen’s Shelter Fund was established as a registered charity in 1966. They are responsible for looking after the remaining Grade II listed shelters and manage the tenants who pay a contribution to the Charity, which goes towards maintaining the shelters. Thirteen shelters still stand in Central and West London and continue to serve tea and food to Cabbies as they have for over 100 years. CSF is a charity and welcomes contributions and support to keep the Shelters maintained and preserved as special historical and working sites.
