Welcome to Didcot Railway Centre
See our unique collection of Great Western Railway steam engines, coaches, wagons, buildings and small relics; and a recreation of Brunel's broad gauge railway. Join us in our rural setting based around the original 1930s engine shed.
Roadworks on Station Road, Didcot - 18-28 May
Due a high voltage power cable relocation, Station Road will be reduced to one-way, eastbound, past Didcot Parkway station from 18-28 May. Consequently, the only access to Parkway will be from the west end. Bus routes will be affected - contact the appropriate bus company for more information.
Additionally, on the weekend of the 18/19 May the forecourt of the station will be closed entirely to vehicles.
Visitors will be able to access the station and railway centre on foot. Disabled parking on that weekend will be limited.
The Railway Centre is open every weekend throughout the year and daily from 25 May to 15 September.
