South Yard

From Monday March 23 2015, South Yard will be closed to the public for approximately 3 months whilst we undertake major works. This includes both the construction of the temporary structure for the Theatre Royal project and the upgrade to the miniature railway.


The South Yard is the Museum's outdoor area, and is home to our operating locomotives and railway lines. Steam rides, which run during school holidays, provide the perfect opportunity to get up close to working steam locos.
