Overview

Spend the day at Didcot Railway Centre and discover the home of the Great Western Railway – the famous railway designed by Isambard Kingdom Brunel! On arrival for your steam and diesel train day, one of the guides will take you on an impressive private tour of the centre, showing you behind the scenes and giving you a look at some of the steam locomotives at the centre. You’ll get to see the Engine Shed which dates to 1932 and houses operational and restored locomotives, as well as getting a look at the Coal Stage, the Turntable that is used to ensure the locomotives are facing the direction of travel, locomotive workshops and much more! You’ll enjoy a delicious lunch during the day, giving you all the fuel you need to keep you going throughout this exciting day! After lunch, experience life on the footplate, as you ride on board one of Didcot’s steam engines, feeling the power of these incredible pieces of kit!
