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
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 the cardboard pieces of your model. Secure your place by booking online—tickets will be available soon.
Enjoy an Easter hunt with a difference that will have the whole family exploring and learning together. Use our Treasure Hunters app or print-at-home object hunts to curate your own museum adventure. There are no wrong answers, only the opportunity to discover something new.
Entry is free. A charge applies for some activities
