Fabulous for All Ages - It’s a railway preservation centre more than a museum, a real hands on experience with live steam, rides, climb aboard and so much to see, to do and to photograph. Add great cafe, shops, picnic areas with playgrounds and so many exhibits this is both a rail enthusiasts’ and a childrens’ dream, great for all ages. You’ll want to spend most of the day here. Fantastic… oh, and staffed by a team of exceptionally interested and knowledgeable volunteers. The best thing to do in Oxford for sure- Jeremy J - Abergavenny - August 2023
We have around 4,000 members including over 250 active volunteers who help run the Centre.
