Ever wondered what goes on behind the scenes of a train depot?

This is your opportunity to look round one of GWR’s main intercity depots with a personal tour around giving a unique insight into its inner workings. The tour, which will last approximately 45 minutes, will include areas which are not open to the public on the day. Each tour group will be limited to 10 people, so spaces are limited and we recommend you book early.

Note, whilst on the tour you will at times walk on uneven surfaces and also visit areas that are not suitable for wheelchairs and buggys ect.

Tours will start at 11:30, 12:30, 13:30, 14:30 and 15:30.
