Come along to the Free Pass Fabric Workshop to find out how all manner of colours are found on the railways.

From uniforms to seat covers, our railways feature fabrics of many colours.

Learn how the process of fabric dyeing works and have a go yourself in a tie-dyeing workshop, running at 11.00 and 14.00 each day.

You can also tackle the Shildon Story family trail, become absorbed in our picture trail and little ones can blow off some steam in our indoor play area.
