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

Really Enjoyable and Interesting Place - Really enjoyable museum, with a wide range of trains and other Great Western railway related things to see and do for all ages! I visited on a day that trains weren’t running but there was still plenty to see and do to fill a day. I’ve been going past on the train for years and never made it inside, so I was really pleased to get the chance to go - thank you!
