Flying Scotsman

18 April – 2 May 2019

Climb aboard Flying Scotsman’s footplate for a unique view of the locomotive from the driving seat. Wheelchair users and pushchairs can now get onto the footplate, too, thanks to a custom-built platform making it accessible.

Make your own Flying Scotsman

Easter weekend

Work together to build your own Flying Scotsman to take home in our making activity. You will become closely acquainted with the legendary locomotive and how it works as you piece together your model.

Find out more and book your tickets.

Treasure Hunt
