Hornby Visitor Centre

Hornby Visitor Centre

Join us for a journey through the history of Britain's best-loved toys

Featuring rare products from the Hornby, Scalextric, Airfix and Corgi archives. Track the history of Hornby’s iconic model trains from Frank Hornby’s early home-made toys in sheet metal, through the development of Hornby ‘O’ gauge and Hornby-Dublo.

Don't miss the spectacular Model Railway and Scalextric layouts, the Hornby Retail Shop offers an extensive range of Hornby, Scalextric, Airfix, Humbrol and Corgi products.

The Hornby Visitor Centre is open every day, from 10am – 4pm (October – March) and from 10am – 5pm (April – September) with free entry to the Shop and Café.




Over the next few weeks we will be making some exciting changes to the D-Day exhibition room at the Visitor Centre. The Medway Modelling Club are undertaking the construction of a new exhibit for this area - a spectacular Battle of Britain diorama, depicting an RAF Airfield under attack during the opening phase of the Battle of Britain.


We aim to keep disruption to a minimum, but apologise for any inconvenience this may cause you.
