Christmas at the National Railway Museum

Christmas Event


Make memories this festive season at the National Railway Museum. Get the family together and immerse yourselves in our atmospheric halls of iconic locomotives and our unrivalled collection of engineering firsts.

We have a whole host of free festive activities in store to keep your little ones entertained this winter:

- Make your very own working cardboard railway lantern to take home with you
- Create your own light-up Christmas card
- Solve challenges to design a Christmas picture with our Pixel Puzzles!

With festive jumper adorned, jump onboard our Miniature Railway for a little taste of train travel. You can even relive Mallard’s record-breaking run on our Mallard Experience. After time well spent among the giants of the rails, warm up with a hot drink and indulge in festive treats in our cafés. Our mince pies, chocolate log and Christmas cake are sure to please all—with not a “bah humbug!” to be heard.

Don't forget to have a look around our shop, where you'll find gifts aplenty—including our fantastic new Azuma toy train. Don't worry if you can't make it though, you can shop online, too.

Closed Christmas Eve, Christmas Day and Boxing Day.
