Support Us

Didcot Railway Centre is operated by the Great Western Society - registered charity number 272616. 

We rely on income from visitors to keep the Centre running and to fund the restoration and conservation work required to maintain our unique collection of locomotives, carriages wagons, buildings and other artefacts, many of which date from Victorian times.

With the Centre currently closed, any donation give us will help with the essential expenditure needed to safeguard these items for future generations to enjoy. If you are able to make a donation, then please do so.  We thank you for your ongoing support at this exceptionally difficult time and hope to welcome you to the Centre very soon.

If you are unable to visit but would like to donate an amount similar to the entrance cost, then choose Virtual Entrance Ticket - this is a donation of £12, the price of Gift Aid adult entry on a Steam Day.

Virtual Entrance Ticket 12.00

Would you like to Gift Aid your purchase?
I would like the Great Western Society to reclaim the tax on this and any other eligible donations or membership subscriptions that I may make in the future until further notice. I understand that I need to pay enough Income Tax or Capital Gains Tax in each tax year to cover the Gift Aid claimed on all my donations to charity, otherwise it is my responsibility to pay any difference.

If your tax circumstances change, or if you do not wish Gift Aid to apply to any specific donations, please contact us on 01235 817200 or email
