Owner description: Re-live the glorious days of the steam railway at Stephenson Railway Museum! The Museum is home to George Stephenson's 'Billy', a forerunner of the world- famous Rocket, and many other engines from the great age of steam. A programme of free events runs throughout the year, and train rides on working steam and diesel locomotives are available at certain times (check the website for details).

“Love Railways”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 17, 2013

Great for children and adults. A couple of years since I was there but always enjoy anything about railways and trains present and past. Good when trains run in the summer.

“Great Little Museam”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 17, 2012

Visited for the first time in a number of years, only thing is they need to expand the railway and offer a longer ride. Not sure if this is acheivable.
