From Our Editors

London Museum of Water & Steam features artefacts and interactive exhibits that demonstrate the vital role of water as the lifeblood of the metropolis. Things can get messy in the Splash Zone, an outdoor area for families to enjoy some water-based fun. Stopping by the Waterwheel Courtyard, guests can discover how gears, wheels, buckets, levers, pumps and pipes are all used to control water in different ways. The heart of the museum showcases a majestic collection of steam pumping engines, including engines from Cornwall, as well as rotative engines. There's also a short railway line, demonstrating an example of the railways that were a common feature of Victorian waterworks. Outside, visitors can stroll around the gardens among a water feature, vegetable patch and pond. Stokers Cafe is available for those in search of refreshment, or guests can browse the visitor shop.

This is amazing museum for kids and adults alike. Many exhibits are hands on where you can pump the water in different ways. The outside splash zone is great fun and educational at the same time. The steam train runs only selected weekends so we missed that. There is a garden to walk around as well. Cafe is nice with wooden railway train set for kids to play while you enjoy the coffee.

Very informative about the history of London's water network and the basic working systems including the route taken during sewage treatment. Lots of things for children to partake in. Thoroughly recommend for a day out with free parking.

So well laid out, wonderful interactive equipment for all ages, and if you visit on a weekend then some of the engines will be in steam which is great to see, and of course there is the narrow gauge railway that you can have a short ride on round the perimeter of the site. A wonderful few hours spent here.

More development of cafe would be nice with more food choices. We would have stayed but there were no sandwiches so we went to Bill's.
