More about the Amberley Museum and Heritage Centre

Located in the heart of the South Downs National Park in West Sussex, the museum is home to some of the most important items in the history of transport and communication, from industrial trains to bicycles, industrial and domestic appliances, a radio station and much more – it’s a real treasure trove for history lovers!

Make sure you check out the transport collection – where you’ll find different examples of steam, petrol, diesel and battery-power locomotives. Not only will you learn more about the history of the British industrial narrow-gauge railways, but you’ll also be able to travel around the Museum in old coaches thanks to the 2-foot gauge passenger railway line which serves the stations of Amberley, Brockham and Cragside.

Whether you’re visiting for a special event or you simply want to enjoy a ride on an industrial locomotive, we recommend you spend at least half a day at the Amberley Museum and Heritage Centre.
