A little while ago we went to Whitewebbs Museum of Transport in Enfield. I’d never heard of it before – it wasn’t until our friends mentioned it and we thought it sounded like fun. I felt a little guilty going without my other half (sorry Andrew) as he loves anything car/transport/engine related – but we had fun and I think we’ll possibly go back again with Andrew one day soon. It’s £5 per adult to get in and children are free – they only accept cash and have no card machines so don’t forget to get cash out beforehand (we made that mistake!). They also have little tea rooms where you can have a bite to eat and something to drink, which added a lovely little touch to the museum.
When we visited it was almost empty. We saw a few other elderly/middle aged couples looking around and only one other child. It felt better this way as the kids could wander about more and run around thoroughly enjoying themselves. The staff are lovely and most are volunteers – they are always on hand to talk to you about anything you’d like to know! We met a lovely elderly gentleman who talked to us about an old ambulance he had restored after his wife passed. He was very enthusiastic which made the whole experience so much more interesting and enjoyable.
The kids got to go on an old London double decker, which they LOVED, followed by an old fire engine. (Daisy’s little dreams all came true!) She loves fireman Sam at the moment. There’s an old railway carriage you can go in and see a mini model train and village -it looks incredible. There’s some picnic benches too so if you want to bring a picnic (which we did) then you can! The perfect afternoon out when the sun is shining. You can then wander around the old courtyard and explore the three floors of vintage bikes and cars inside. Definitely worth a little visit if you’re local to the Enfield or Hertfordshire area.
