Welcome to Didcot Railway Centre

See our unique collection of Great Western Railway steam engines, coaches, wagons, buildings and small relics based around the original 1930s engine shed

We heard the first whistle of summer 2020 from our garden behind the Railway centre, and it was a bit like a call to prayer! Our visit today did not disappoint. Well thought out and friendly social distancing measures combined with the incredible Railway centre meant the perfect family day out for adults or young families. Thank you very much.
