Work has officially started on the construction of a major visitor destination which will be at the heart of the Bicentennial Anniversary of the Stockton & Darlington Railway in 2025.
Essential improvements will be carried out on several significantly historic buildings on the site, linking them together to create a cluster of attractions including the Skerne Bridge, the oldest working railway bridge in the world.
Digital and technological investment will bring history to life and plans include a new immersive ride experience the likes of which are only seen in theme parks.
The attraction will have a café and shop, themed play area, show field, a new live engineering building, temporary exhibition space, archive and extended car parking. The project is being supported by £20million of funding from the Tees Valley Mayor and Combined Authority. Sign up to our mailing list to be the first to hear the latest news!
