Getting to Locomotion: The National Railway Museum at Shildon

We’re located here in County Durham.

Due to Locomotion’s location within a residential area of Shildon, there will be no free public parking at the museum during the Shed Bash. Park & Ride services will be available from Hardwick Park (East Park on outskirts of Sedgefield, TS21 2DN) and Bishop Auckland college (Woodhouse Lane, DL14 6JZ) at a charge of £3 per person. Park & Ride services will run from 8.30am to 6.30pm (last buses leave Collection at 6pm). To respect the needs of local residents, we would ask all visitors to use Park & Ride facilities or public transport rather than parking on the roadside in Shildon.

For visitors with disabilities, there will be a limited number of allocated disabled parking spaces at the Collection Building (Main Car Park – use postcode DL4 2RE) along with limited disabled spaces at the western end of site at Car Park C (use postcode DL4 1PQ). Access to disabled parking bays will be allocated on a first come, first served basis and will only be given to visitors displaying a disabled parking badge. If onside disabled parking is full or you have mobility issues but are not registered disabled please speak to a member of staff about drop-off points.
