About the event

Join us on a journey to explore the oldest turning shed in the World where the golden age of steam once ruled!

The crumbling remains of The Roundhouse has been restored into a truly unique learning centre for Derby College and this special tour reveals how the impressive new buildings complement the character of this historical site.

Derby Roundhouse is a Grade II listed building, built in 1839 and given Guinness World Record status in 2012 as the oldest surviving railway Roundhouse in the world.

The friendly and knowledgeable tour guides will take you around The Roundhouse, the Engine Shed and Carriage Shop and reveal the true-life stories of the men, women and children who pioneered Derby's railway industry. The tour lasts approximately 45 minutes to one hour and ends with a cup of tea or coffee.

You can walk in the footsteps of George Stephenson, constructor of The Roundhouse and discover how the town of Derby prospered at the forefront of Britain's Industrial Revolution.

Booking and payment in advance is essential.
