Historic, fun and unforgettable.

STEAM tells the remarkable story of the men and women who built, operated and travelled on 'God's Wonderful Railway'.

STEAM gives you the chance to experience the sights and sounds of the GWR works at Swindon - famous as the place where many of the best steam locomotives in the world were built - and to hear the stories of the men and women who worked there.

STEAM also brings to life the exploits of Isambard Kingdom Brunel - the flamboyant engineer, and acknowledged genius, behind the creation of the GWR.

STEAM is a fascinating journey for all the family, through the life and times of the GWR.
