How Transport For London Organizes 340,000 Lost Items

Have you ever used public transport in London and lost an umbrella, mobile phone, or a bag? Well, if you have then there is a good chance that it may have ended up in the capitals Lost Property Office. The office in Baker Street is home to thousands of lost items that have been left across TfL networks, which includes the Underground, buses and the Docklands Light Railway. 

We were shown around by the office manager, Paul Cowan, who explained the meticulous and well-organized system of how they store all these items. Paul also shares with us some of the weirdest things he has seen come through the office and how you can reclaim any lost items you think you may have misplaced. 

The TfL Lost Property office opened in 1934 in London, England. The office received over 340,000 during 2017/2018. We were given a tour to see how things are organized and how you can reclaim any lost items.
