Answer for Horniman Museum

Answered By: 
The Mayor

The Horniman Museum already has information on its website for visitors detailing how to get there by rail, bus and coach, together with maps showing the local area, bus stops and other facilities. A link is also provided to TfL's website for visitors requiring further information. Regrettably, the museum's website also refers to free parking being available in surrounding streets, which undoubtedly leads to visitors arriving by car and parking in the surrounding area. TfL will raise this matter directly with the museum. TfL also offers a travel plan support service to organisations across the Capital to help improve travel choices for trips by employees and visitors. The size of the organization determines the level of support TfL is able to provide, with advice and grants available to encourage more sustainable travel options. Tfl would be happy to work with the museum on developing sustainable travel initiatives.
