Stephenson’s Rocket has returned to Manchester for the first time in over 180 years.

Rocket was built to run on the Liverpool and Manchester Railway, the world’s first inter-city passenger railway line. In 1829, Rocket won the Rainhill Trials, a competition to decide the best mode of transport for the railway.

The technology and design of Rocket was soon extended across the entire railway network, shaping the course of railway history.

This is once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to dine next to an iconic symbol of locomotive history in the world’s oldest surviving passenger railway, now home to the Science and Industry Museum.
