OPEN Today!

Ride free on old buses in service on London bus route 61!

On Saturday 14th September 2024, between 1000 and 1700 in conjunction with Heritage Open Days the London Bus Museum will be running heritage buses dating from the 1950s to 1970s alongside the normal daily service on route 61, between Bromley and Chislehurst via Orpington.

Buses being used will mostly be the iconic red Routemaster, dating from the late 1950s and 1960s, and their predecessor the RT-type, which in the 1950s formed the largest standardised bus fleet in the world.

No need to book, just turn up at a route 61 bus stop and put out your hand!
