Trains to Didcot Parkway

Although the railway has run through the Oxfordshire town of Didcot since the 1840s, the current five-platform station opened just north of the town in the summer of 1985, with a vast car park for season-ticket holders. Since then Didcot town has matured into a large residential town, with a steady stream of commuters heading into London, Bristol and Bath, Cardiff and Swansea. Didcot was once famous for its less-than-beautiful power stations, but the last of them disappeared in 2015, and now the largest town in South Oxfordshire appeals to culture vultures, walkers and shoppers. The multi-faceted Orchard Centre, with a cinema and entertainment centre as well as 30 high-street favourites and a monthly farmers market, is a two-minute walk from the station. Those who fancy a stroll further afield can turn to Ladygrove Park and Lakes, and rail fans will love the Didcot Railway Centre - it's a popular day out for families too, especially when Thomas the Tank Engine chugs into town.
