Exclusive special offers for pre-booked groups

Pre-booking a group visit couldn't be easier, and entitles your group to lots of special offers and discounts during your visit. See our general special offers page for more details. You must order any special offer vouchers when you make your booking. We'll give the vouchers to the group organiser or coach driver when you get here.

Catering for your group

If you’d like to make catering arrangements for your group visit, call 01904 630914 – we'll be happy to help.

Coach parking

All-day coach parking is available for groups. We're only 10 minutes walk from the centre of historic York. A road train runs between the museum and York Minster.

If your coach is dropping off only, there's a large space for this outside our Car Park Entrance. But coaches can't park in this area.

What groups say about us

“Thank you for our visit to the National Railway Museum which was enjoyed by everyone in our group with ages ranging from 11 to 81. The opportunity to park the coach at the museum was an enormous bonus and made our visit so much easier.”
