Living Museum of the Great Western Railway

Half-term Steam Days

Sat 22 & Sun 23 Feb - unlimited steam train rides and much more!

Getting close and personal to trains - A well laid out centre to see engines, signalling, and a museum. Good shop, cafe and toilets, and just a few minutes walk from inside Didcot Parkway station. Very helpful, friendly staff.

Amazing!!: Our 4 year old is absolutely in love with all things trains and this place really hit the mark on our recent family day out, loads to see and do here and well worth a visit, very well priced for everything you get to see. We will be back soon!!
