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.

Access from Didcot West (Foxhall Road) Car Park
The footbridge from the large APCOA Car Park to Didcot Parkway Station (and hence the Railway Centre) is to be replaced over the next few weeks, as part of the Great Western Mainline Electrification project. A temporary footbridge will be in place whilst the old footbridge is demolished and a new one erected, but there may be changes to the access route from the car park over the temporary footbridge. These will be clearly signposted by Network Rail.

The Railway Centre is now open at weekends and daily from 23 May 2015.
