Dover in south east England, like most busy towns, has hidden away some little gems worth visiting.
 
Dover Transport Museum is a mixture period shops and streetscapes housing forms of transport from bicycles to buses and the facilities needed to service them like a 1930s garage. Visiting this place is like stepping back seventy years when getting around was a much slower and more leisurely affair.
 
On display are pre-war cars, double deck buses, a model railway and tramway, and many models depicting local transport and maritime history. There are Roman artefacts and items from the Kent Coalfields - an extraordinary mixture.
 
Beautifully restored vintage cars are on display and visitors can watch these restorations being undertaken. The Museum hosts a number of events through the year including a combined day with the East Kent Light Railway where vintage transport connects the stations with the Museum.
