Whether you intend your visit to be an hour or two or you wish to stay for a full day, here at the Midland Railway Butterley, there are plenty of things to see and do.
It's a day out for the whole family with model and miniature railways, playground, picnic areas, cafes and a country park as well as heritage steam and diesel locomotives operating and a host of other attractions. Sometimes you can see special visitors, be it Thomas the Tank Engine, a vintage Steam or historic Diesel Loco.
Take a nostalgic trip on one of the heritage trains, immerse yourself in a heritage railway culture, explore the museums at Swanwick Junction, take a walk in the country park and much more.
The highlight of any visit to Midland Railway Butterley is the Museum at the Swanwick Junction Complex where you alight from your train for a full day out. Every visit is different, with some attractions open on certain days and locomotives and rolling stock being moved.
