Museums and Attractions

The Steam Heritage Guide

The Steam Heritage Guide contains over 900 heritage railways, museums and attractions.

Search Britain's most comprehensive guide to the heritage and preservation scene based on region, county, type of attraction (e.g. heritage railways, museums and steam centres, maritime etc.) or by keyword (such as museum name, a location or even an attraction).

As with the printed version of the Steam Heritage Guide, each attraction listing displays a description, facilities, contact details, open days and times and nearest railway stations and bus routes. In addition, the online listings can contain photos, map location, a full comprehensive description, events at the attraction plus visitor and Steam Heritage reviews and articles.
