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.
