Re-live the glorious days of the steam railway at Stephenson Railway Museum in North Shields.

The Museum is home to George Stephenson's 'Billy', a forerunner of the world-famous 'Rocket'. 'Billy' is joined by many other engines from the great age of steam, including 'Jackie Milburn', named after the Newcastle United legend.

Visitors can discover how trains work through interactive displays and learn about the impact of coal and electricity on ordinary people's lives.

Over the summer, rides on a passenger train can be taken.
