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 Model Railway Exhibition, 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.
