We also welcome group visits by prior arrangement and can provide guided tours tailored to your interests.
We would like to give our special thanks to the many visiting exhibitors who support our events throughout the year, helping to make a day out with us an experience to enjoy and remember.
Our next Open Day is on Sunday 1st August, and we look forward to welcoming you then.
The Hathorn Davey pumping engine and the Babcock & Wilcox water-tube boiler will be in steam with as much of the site will be open and in operation as is safe to do so under Step 4 guidance.
Obviously, the safety of our visitors and volunteers is the number one priority and there will be a number of changes to the site to ensure that the Covid risk to everyone is minimised. This includes site-wide availability of hand sanitiser, one way systems, contactless payment, and restrictions to numbers inside the buildings.
We continue to recommend that all visitors wear face masks inside the buildings unless medically exempt.
Please purchase a ticket from our admissions kiosk when you arrive.
