Museum and Archive

The Museum houses the Collection of the Great Western Trust with fascinating smaller artefacts illustrating every aspect of the Great Western Railway. It is a wonderful place to discover some of the lesser-known aspects of GWR history.

Items include impressive brass nameplates, rare and commonplace tickets, lamps, chinaware from the GWR's station refreshment rooms or luxury dining cars and many of the beautiful posters advertising attractive destinations across the GWR system - there's even a working Platform Ticket machine that uses the ‘old pennies’ and still dispenses platform tickets as a memento of your day!
