Whether you’re something of a railway enthusiast or you just fancy spending a few hours doing something different, the Ingrow Museum of Rail Travel is an engaging and evocative attraction that welcomes the whole family.
Home to a collection of classic and restored railway carriages, the museum showcases carriages and artefacts that have appeared in more than 50 television programmes over the years, and it’s a great way to discover more about the valley’s history.
There are sound and visual presentations throughout to keep things interesting for younger visitors, and you can even hop aboard and sit inside the original rail carriages to imagine what travel was like in the golden era of steam (always a favourite!).
You’ll find the museum in the yard behind Ingrow station, so make sure you hop off at Ingrow if you want to visit during your day on the Keighley and Worth Valley Railway. The yard’s home to two museums and entry to both is free with a Day Rover ticket for the train line, so if you’ll be travelling to the museum via the steam train make sure you opt for one to make the saving.
