Welcome to the 175th anniversary celebrations
The Didcot to Oxford branch line of the Great Western Railway opened in June 1844. On Saturday 15th June 2019 we’ll be celebrating its 175th anniversary.
There will be events at or near all five stations along the line – Didcot, Appleford, Culham, Radley and Oxford – and you’ll be able to buy a special GWR ticket to take you from one station to the next.
Don't miss what is going to be a great day for all ages and all interests. Visit one, a couple, or even all the venues. Why not take advantage of the special extra stops on local rail services and travel by train? Whatever you choose to do you will not be disappointed.
Click or tap any of the menu items above to see what's planned at that location. Check out the photo competition and the other events leading up to the anniversary weekend too.
We hope to see you on 15th June!
