Locomotion overview

The perfect platform for your event

The modern surroundings of Locomotion at Shildon are sure to impress all who visit, whether for a daytime conference or an evening event


Locomotion has three meeting rooms available for hire.

Community Room 1 (up to 50 delegates) and Community Room 2 (up to 10 people) are situated in the Welcome Building. Originally built as a Sunday School in the 1800s, Welcome now houses the original Sans Pareil built by Timothy Hackworth.

The Education Room (up to 50 delegates), is situated in the modern Collection Building, and outside the museum provides a dramatic backdrop for delegates to enjoy.

The Collection Building itself – which houses more than 60 vehicles, including locomotives such as the prototype Deltic and Sir Nigel Gresley’s Green Arrow – is a fabulous setting for any evening event for up to 350 guests.
