Great Hall is home to many of the greatest achievements in railway history, including legendary speed record-breaker the Mallard.
Guests can get up close and personal with this iconic 1938 locomotive as well as many others from our national collection, including the Japanese Shinkanseen or ‘Bullet Train’.
They can marvel at the sheer power of the King George V and revel in the nostalgic charm of the Evening Star, the last steam locomotive ever built for British Railways.
Great Hall unfolds the history of rail travel and offers a glimpse into its future. This compelling location serves as an ideal venue for dinners and receptions on its own, and as a pre-dinner reception space in conjunction with Station Hall.
