One place we love going for a day out is the National Railway Museum in York. There’s so much to do and see here for all ages. It’s a great rainy day place as it’s mostly indoors.
Explore over 300 years of railway history. Spark your little ones’ imaginations with family-friendly science shows and storytelling. For little ones there is an indoor play area with a small soft play, they can pretend to work in a ticket office or play with some trains.
For a small fee (£3) you can climb aboard and experience the railways in small scale on their miniature railway ride.
You can eat in The Countess restaurant (which serves afternoon tea) ☕️ There’s also a cafe, restaurant and refreshments in the courtyard.
It is a really family friendly place.
The museum has free entry but donations are encouraged. There is a visitor car park opposite which is chargeable however if you eat in The Countess restaurant (which serves afternoon tea) ☕️ 🍰 you can get your ticket stamped to park for free. There’s also a cafe, restaurant or refreshments in the courtyard.
