London Museum of Water & Steam

The London Museum of Water & Steam is located in a Grade I-listed Victorian pump station, built back in 1838. It features nine of the original machines that still remain in working order, which were responsible for pumping clean water into people’s homes around London. The Cornish Engine remains at the centre of this collection, while recalling how the fresh water we receive in our homees has steadily improved in quality since the 17th century.

There are plenty of tunnels and sewers to navigate your way through and you can marvel at the huge Hindley Waterwheel still in place. There are wide range of activities to keep the minds of children whirring, including the chance to compare the quality of clean and polluted water, as well as a Splash Zone full of experiments using pumps, pulleys and more.
