Shop – Loughborough Central

Books and DVDs for enthusiasts, sweets and souvenirs for the young and young at heart. The Great Central Railway's Shop at Loughborough Central is open when trains are running (usually closing after the departure of the last train of the day). There are toys, books, gifts and games on sale inside - or if you are in a hurry, dash past the authentic newspaper kiosk at the front for sweets, drinks and ice creams.

We also stock a range of GCR essentials like our guidebook, our 'through the window guide' and our guide to walks from the line. Don't get on board without them! If you like keeping up to date with the current railway scene, we have the latest editions of certain popular magazines.

The shop couldn't be easier to find - right at the foot of the stairs at Loughborough Central (just  a short distance from the lift). We look forward to seeing you.
