York's National Railway Museum & York

With Roberts Travel Group

Prices from...


The great walled city of York is one of the most historically significant in Britain, resplendent with castle and magnificent cathedral. It is still possible to circumnavigate the city walls – a great way to sightsee – and imagine the city back in medieval times or even as a Roman garrison.  York has a fantastic array of culture, history and opportunities for all to enjoy. 

Get up close to over 200 years of fascinating history in York’s only National Museum.  Explore our giant halls full of trains and railway legends including Mallard - the world's fastest steam locomotive, the Shinkansen Bullet Train and Royal Trains including Queen Victoria's luxurious saloon.  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.  Get on board awe inspiring locomotives, watch our engineers at work in The Workshop, uncover hidden treasures in The Warehouse and make tracks to our outdoor area. Kids can let off steam in our play areas and on our miniature railway ride.

Discover 300 years of history and 1,000,000 objects that changed the world in the UK's largest railway museum whist visiting the ancient city of the North.
