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

Fantastic day out - First museum trip out post lock down and Didcot was a good as ever. Great COVID measures that don’t spoil the day but make you feel safe. Lots of fun exploring the site, riding the train and going for a picnic. An amazing collection and lots to see. Even better when the sun shines!
