From 19 July - plan your visit

Stephenson Steam Railway is open Saturdays, Sundays, Mondays and Thursdays during the school summer holidays (Saturdays and Mondays for Museum only visits - except Bank Holiday Monday 30 August when trains will also be running).

Plan your visit

Pre-book to guarantee the timeslot for your train ride.  Tickets are also available at the Museum on the day (subject to availability). You don't need a ticket on Mondays and Saturdays when there are no train rides. We recommend you wear a face covering in our indoor spaces and on the train.
