No visit to York is complete without a visit to the National Railway museum, home to railway icons including Thomas the Tank Engine.
There is something for everyone in the National Railway Museum, whether you're interested in the social history of the railways, the design of the Eurostar, the Japanese bullet train or Thomas the Tank Engine.
This multi-awarded Museum is only the fourth British Institution to win the prestigious European Museum of the Year, adding a new international dimension to a string of national accolades.
The National Railway Museum also has the first ever exhibition dedicated to the legendary steam locomotive, The Flying Scotsman, the world’s most famous steam locomotive, as well as the biggest collection of royal carriages in the world. Experience the sounds, sights and smells of the world’s fastest steam locomotive and have a ride on a simulator ride recreating Mallard’s record-breaking run. Whilst there, have a break at the cafe/ restaurant of the museum offering amazing food sourced locally.
