Admission includes unlimited rides behind historic steam locomotives from our collection and the chance to see the newly digitised British Film Institute archive, Britain On Film, Railways (83 mins).
Britain on Film, Railways is a new collection of rare archive films charting the history of the UK’s railways and bringing home the romance and heady freedoms offered by train travel as it expanded across the country in the early 20th century. Sourced from the national and regional archives and newly digitised this is an immensely nostalgic and evocative collection of films which document not just the glories of the railway, but also the changing social, political and economic climates of the 20th century.
