New Hall Gallery Time

Explore our New Hall and learn about the story of the North East’s role in early railway development.

With a design inspired by an engine shed, New Hall tells the story of the North East’s role in early railway development with six themed roads of railway vehicles. 

You’ll find 47 vehicles on display here.

For KS1 and KS2 we'll provide free trail sheets to help you explore. This activity is self-led.

Pre-booking is required.
