Things to do in Chappel & Wakes Colne

East Anglian Railway Museum

Immerse yourself in a real steam railway museum

When you arrive at Chappel & Wakes Colne station it’s like stepping back into the past, this living heritage museum is full of history around our railway and a great day out. Immerse yourself in a real steam railway museum and get up close and personal to the wide collection of steam trains, diesel locomotives and vintage carriages. The atmospheric Victorian buildings, restored trains and working signal boxes tell a unique story of a time when the railway was the largest employer in the region. See the museum really come to life on event days… with period costume, train rides, Thomas the Tank Engine and much more. Enjoy coffees, cream teas and light lunches in Chappel Station café on a vintage railway carriage – also open to the general public
