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.

Very informative and engaging museum for both adults and kids. Lots to see and know about from giant steam engines, boiler, centrifugal pumps, steam railway, vintage cars, vertical steam fire engine. Plenty of activities for kids, drawing, colouring, sandpits, kite making, playing with toy trains. Overall worth every penny to visit this fabulous place. Car park is free but can be full on busy days.

It's was really amazing, my kids age 2 to 6 really had so much fun and still asking if we could go there again. You also learn a lot there too so I will definitely recommend to any family.

Nice museum. There is also a chance to ride one of the miniature trains. When the weather is good there is also an outdoor mini play area to engage in.

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.
