Days Out in York: NATIONAL RAILWAY MUSEUM
If you love trains, then it doesn't get much better than this! Travel by PCL limo for a great day out in York , home of the world's largest railway museum. With three staggering halls of legendary trains, you won't know where to begin!
It really is a complete experience, packed with interaction, demonstrations and fascinating events. See the locomotive turntable in action, relive steam and diesel engines, or take a trip on the miniature railway.
Children will love the Interactive Learning Centre, with its bridges and signals and loads more hands-on fun. Then when it's time for a breather, the Play 'n' Picnic area is just the place.
Ready for a ride with a difference? Climb aboard the Norwich Union Yorkshire Wheel and get a fantastic view across the city and beyond. This incredible observation wheel soars nearly 200ft into the sky from inside the Museum, carrying passengers in eight-seater capsules … an unforgettable experience!
Then, with your action-packed day drawing to a close, sit back and relax as your PCL limo takes you safely home. The National Railway Museum is open every day of the year except Xmas and general admission is free.
This is just one of the recommended days out on our kids page.
