Coronavirus

Due to the current Corona virus outbreak, many attractions are delaying their 2020 season opening times and event organisers are cancelling or postponing their events.

While we will try to update the information on this site as much as possible, we cannot guarantee to have all the information we would like.

Therefore we urge you to check the latest information on the attraction or event's website or Facebook pages, and to contact them before travelling to avoid disappointment.

Events in East England

The East of England was a major centre for the Royal Air Force and the US Air Force during the Second World War and there are museums reflecting this. However, a wide range of interests are covered, such as water pumping stations, gas works, traction engine builders and industrial railways.

The Steam Heritage Guide includes contact details, opening times and description of preservation and heritage attractions across the East of England region including Bedfordshire, Cambridgeshire, Essex, Norfolk, Suffolk and Huntingdonshire.
