The Roundhouse, the Engine Shed and Carriage Shop - tour

Derby Roundhouse is the oldest remaining locomotive turning shed in the world dating back to 1839. 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.
The Tour takes around an hour and costs just £6 per person (£5 per person for group bookings of ten or more).
Later we can go somewhere for a coffee.

    Hi. I think we could rearrange the Meetup. It depends on Peter availability. The 28th of July was a non-Meetup day; so I booked it on that day.
