Living Museum of the Great Western Railway

Welcome to Didcot Railway Centre

Explore the unique collection of Great Western Railway steam locomotives, carriages, wagons, buildings and small artefacts at our 21 acre living museum set around the original 1932 Engine Shed

Great place to visit highly recommended - This is a really interesting venue, well laid out with lots to see if you are a train enthusiast or just want to see a snapshot from travel history. Apart from perhaps the tea room the place is staffed by super friendly people with so much knowledge. All in all a great day out, definitely one to come back to. It's directly connected to Didcot Parkway station so dead easy to get to.
