The Great Northern Railway arrived in Biggleswade in 1850 and the station's yellow-brick building and wooden platform canopies still have a nicely Victorian feel. Biggleswade is on the East Coast Main Line, and trains from the station travel north to Peterborough and south to London King's Cross. As a visitor, you enter the town from the station on Station Road, along which it is a short walk to the High Street and Biggleswade town centre, where you will find a number of shops and restaurants. Just outside the town, at the Biggleswade Airfield, is the Shuttleworth Collection. This aeronautical and automotive museum houses a collection of vintage aircraft, including Edwardian flying machines, as well as other vehicles, all of which date back to the first half of the 20th century. The Shuttleworth Collection is open daily and can be reached in thirty minutes from Biggeswade bus station, itself a five-minute walk from the train.
