Looking for the perfect day out for your next group visit? Look no further than the award-winning National Railway Museum. Re-live a golden era and witness history brought to life by the story of the railways.

Discover over 200 years of history and a million wonderful railway objects. Soak up the nostalgic atmosphere in our renovated Station Hall which tells the story of over a century of station life. Explore the different passenger journeys and travel back in time to experience working life in a station.

A touch of nostalgia awaits you as you stroll past the treasures in the Warehouse or down the railway platforms of Station Hall, towards the sumptuous Royal Carriages. Delve into our Workshops and watch live demonstrations of the turntable in action!

With a changing programme of special events, talks and exhibitions there is always something new to experience.

    On foot: It's a 10 minute walk to the museum from the centre of town, and the route is well signposted. But for a quicker, more convenient route from the city centre why not catch the Road Train which runs from the museum's entrance to York Minster.

    By Road: The museum is clearly signposted from all approaches to the city. The visitor car park is on Leeman Road (£9 per day). Accessible parking is free, and available outside the museum's City Entrance.

    Parking: with charge. Coach parking also onsite.

    Park & Ride:
    With six cleverly located sites surrounding the city centre getting into York has never been easier. www.yorkparkandride.co.uk


    Parking: with charge

    Accessible by Public Transport: 0 miles from York station
