Visiting the Centre

Buckinghamshire Railway Centre occupies an extensive site in rolling Buckinghamshire countryside. Exhibits range from large express passenger locomotives to the humble shunting engine together with a host of smaller items recreating the golden age of steam.
Check our events programme to see what is happening on the day of your planned visit – steam trains operate on certain days and others are devoted to various special events.
If you have any questions or require more information about the Centre please do telephone 01296-655720 or email

Length of visit

Depending on your level of interest and the nature of the event being held on a particular day you can expect to cover all the principal areas in 2-2½ hours but there's plenty to interest you if you have more time available.
Many of the exhibits are displayed under cover so the Centre is a truly all-weather attraction..
