Coronavirus

Due to the current Corona virus outbreak, many attractions are delaying their 2020 season opening times and event organisers are cancelling or postponing their events.

While we will try to update the information on this site as much as possible, we cannot guarantee to have all the information we would like.

Therefore we urge you to check the latest information on the attraction or event's website or Facebook pages, and to contact them before travelling to avoid disappointment.

It houses some of the world’s rarest working steam engines still in their original location and tells the incredible story of how the Victorians cleaned up London’s water supply – and in doing so created the blueprint for the modern city of London we know today.

The heart of the museum is its collection of magnificent steam pumping engines. These include the Cornish engines, which are in their original engine houses, and the rotative engines, which have been collected by the museum trust from pumping stations across the country. Together the collection demonstrates the major developments in steam engine technology. In addition to these engines, we have also collected examples of diesel, electric, water and animal powered pumping engines.
