National Railway Museum

For travel enthusiasts young and old, this atmospheric museum - the largest of its kind in the world and European Museum of the Year in 2001 - offers vivid insight into 200 years of transportation history. There are displays of over 60 steam, diesel and electric locomotives, including a working replica of George Stephenson's famous 1829 Rocket; the wonderful Mallard, still the fastest steam engine in the world; and the only Shinkansen (Bullet Train) outside Japan.
