Sat 18th - Sun 19th May 2019 Kempton Steaming, Stationary Engine & Model Boat Weekend


See the world's largest working triple-expansion steam pumping engine in action. Housed in a magnificent Art Deco building, the museum preserves one of London's most important steam heritage sites. Attractions include a fine display of stationary engines, plus model boats on the pool. One of the UK's only working mercury arc rectifiers, two steam turbines and a wealth of instruments and equipment. Guided tours will take you up on one of the two Triples and you can enjoy a cup of tea and home-made cakes. Children will love a ride on Darent, our 1903 narrow-gauge locomotive. Open 10.30am-4.00pm. Railway tickets sold separately.
