New Special Exhibitions for 2020

175 years ago, the SS Great Britain embarked on its maiden voyage to New York. To celebrate, our new special exhibitions for this year explore the lesser-known services which were offered by the GWR.

All special exhibitions are included with standard admission and are free to Season Ticket holders.


On the Buses – Exploring the Countryside with the GWR

Discover how the GWR’s introduction of road motor bus services in 1903 created opportunities for rail passengers to explore new and remote holiday destinations!


Flying High – with Railway Air Services

This exhibition flies through railway aviation history, from the first flight offered by the GWR in 1933 through to the nationalisation of domestic air services in 1947.
