Head of Steam – Darlington Railway Museum
Step back in time to Victorian Darlington and head to the Head of Steam Railway Museum to have a look at the world’s first steam-worked public railway.
Visit the booking office with its original Victorian interior and explore their platform that still has its original footbridge, waiting room, newspaper kiosk and Victorian toilets.
The museum has also a dedicated research centre,The Ken Hoole Study Centre, which has an expensive collection of documentary material, photographs, plans, books and periodicals.
The Darlington Railway Museum really has something for everyone and it is only 15 minutes drive from the hotel.
