Our Discovery Centre explores the history of the South Tynedale Railway from its beginnings as the Alston to Haltwhistle branch line right up to date. You can find out about the birth of the South Tynedale Railway Preservation Society, the history of the area and the ‘Trials and Triumphs of a Rural Railway’.

Admission is free and while our older visitors immerse themselves in the exhibition our younger visitors can enjoy playing with our wooden train set. Your dog is also welcome into the Discovery Centre.
