It has been 2 months since I have moved to Manchester, UK for my work assignment and it did not take me long to plan out my first trip to York.
York is one of the popular tourist destinations in the United Kingdom. The main attraction of York is the National Rail Museum , one of the largest rail museums in the world.
National Rail Museum has collections of all type of trains dating back over 300 years and over thousands object related to trains. It includes world fastest steam engine trains, bullet trains, trains used during the time of world war II , the vintage trains used by UK’s royal families like the carriage used by Queen Victoria etc.
Well, there are many things to do in the museum apart from a just display of trains. The visitors can go for the steam engine train ride just in 3 pounds, climb and take pictures of trains from all the ages. Each and every train displayed in the museum share the information about the train’s historical importance, when and who used it for the transportation.
It is a fantastic look back at the history of locomotion past and future, well worth a visit for people of all ages.
York is a chance to see not just the Railways history, but the history of a beautiful historical City.
