Visitor information


11.45am - 3pm

Free event


Marvel at the transport of yesteryear and see a beautifully preserved bus that used to be in every day service. 

Aycliffe & District Bus Preservation Society will be running vintage bus rides from Stephenson Railway Museum to Dial Cottage, near Killingworth, where George Stephenson and his family lived from 1805-1823. Hourly from 11.45am – 2.45pm.

Please note that although we have scheduled the buses to return to the Museum in time for train departures, we are unable to guarantee this due to traffic conditions on the day.
