National Railway Museum, York

National Railway Museum, York

If you like trains then this is for you! It’s the world's largest railway museum and one of the biggest museums in the UK. Deservedly popular, it attracts almost one million visitors every year. The collection stretches back almost three centuries and contains more than one million items.

The great hall houses massive railway engines, several of which are famous for breaking speed records. You can also step back into the present and watch real engineering work taking place in the workshop.

The nearby warehouse has a huge variety of exhibits. One highlight is a lock of Robert Stephenson's hair, which is said to have been taken from him when he died. Stephenson built the pioneering Rocket: one of the first steam locomotives. The museum has many royal trains, including carriages used by monarchs from Queen Victoria to the present Queen.

It’s set in beautiful natural scenery. Children can romp around the outdoor play area and enjoy rides round the grounds on a miniature railway. York Minster and the City Walls are nearby.
