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.

Sun 5th Apr 2020 Family Open Day – Prince Consort in Steam

An opportunity to have a look at the buildings and engines, to take in the exhibition and learn something of the Victorian sewer system which continues to serve the capital.

Today you will also be able to see one of the four engines, Prince Consort, in steam.    10.30am to 4pm

On days when we steam the engine we also provide a shuttle service from Abbey Wood Station which brings you right into the site. The cost of the return journey is £3.00.

The shuttle will stop outside the Abbey Arms in Wilton Road. Get to the stop by turning right immediately outside the station and taking the lift or steps down to Wilton Road. The Abbey Arms is about 35 yards from the bottom of the steps on the right.
