Exhibitions
Come and explore the new special exhibition
‘GWR with Everything’ and discover how the
Great Western Railway branded anything and
everything. From pen nibs, to bricks and
from bars of soap to door handles, everything
was branded with the company initials.
The exhibition displays an array of weird and
wonderful objects that were printed, stamped
and marked with GWR. There is a real
treasure trove of material and objects on
display, some of which are being displayed
for the first time. There are some really
quirky items on display, such as toilet paper
and manhole covers. Visitors will also get to
test their skills with a ‘Guess the Object’
game. With almost a 100 objects on display
this exhibition is a visual feast of everything
GWR.
