Morph’s Epic Art Adventure

Join National Rail in its support of Whizz-Kidz through Morph’s Epic Art Adventure!

National Rail has teamed up with the young person’s mobility charity Whizz-Kidz to be part of the UK’s first step-free art trail (hosted in partnership with Wild In Art and Aardman Animations). The event sees over 50 uniquely designed, super-sized sculptures of the much-loved children’s TV character, Morph, dotted across central London – creating a free and accessible public art trail alongside iconic London landmarks.

National Rail supports Whizz-Kidz’ mission to ensure that all young wheelchair users are mobile, enabled and included, and works with train companies to ensure that travel is readily accessible to all. Our services include Passenger Assist, which offers in-station assistance with train travel journeys (bookable up to 2 hours ahead of travel), and a Disabled Persons Railcard, which offers discounted travel.

Meet our Morph!

We are delighted with our fun, creative and eye-catching Morph character, On Guard, created by Hannah Jayne Lewin. You can find him at Hay’s Galleria near London Bridge station.

Hannah Jayne says, ‘’On Guard takes inspiration from the Royal Guards. From smartly polished shoes and neat red jackets, the Royal Guards are always dressed to impress and this Morph is no exception!”.

Morph shares his wonderful unique origins with other British animation characters such as Wallace and Gromit, Shaun the Sheep, and the Chicken Run bunch. Like them, Morph was created by Aardman Animations Limited, a British animation studio based in Bristol, England, known for making films using stop-motion and clay animation techniques (or in Morph’s case, Plasticine!).

Savings For All

Travelling with your wheelchair

Most trains can accommodate wheelchairs that are within the dimensions prescribed in government regulations covering train design (700mm wide by 1200mm long). There are a small number of older trains that can only currently carry wheelchairs that have a maximum width of 550mm.

There are a limited number of spaces available to wheelchair users on each train, so we recommend making a reservation if one is available. If a space isn’t available onboard because they’re reserved by other customers, the Passenger Assist team will help you find the right options for your journey.
