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.

The Railway Centre is open at weekends, on 21/22 December and daily from 28 December to 2 January 2017.

The Great Western Trust Museum and Archive is currently closed for winter maintenance and re-organisation of exhibits and will re-open on 13 February 2017. There's still plenty to see and do at Didcot Railway Centre on our winter open days.

Next Running Days

To see all the events and open days for 2016 have a look at the 2016 Calendar. You can also check which locomotives are scheduled to be in steam using the Locomotive Roster.

If you'd like a preview of next year our 2017 Programme Leaflet, detailing all events and running days, is now available to download - (1.1Mb .pdf file). Our 2016 Programme Leaflet is also available - (2Mb .pdf file).
