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.

Had a good few hours here with two 6 year olds! Great combination of learning experiences, hands on and outdoor water water. Well done to museum for getting the balance right for a family outing. The boys spent a considerable amount of time diverting water and making the wheels turn. The train was a little bonus too. Maybe cafe needed two people on the till though at lunchtime, but gentlemen working there was excellent and friendly even under pressure 👍

This visit not so good as the 1st!! My grandchildren were disappointed as the advertised steam train was not running that day...and most of the water features outside in the play area were not working!! I'll check before starting out next time!

A gem of a place. Loads to see, a terrific indoor and outdoor area for kids to play, a charming steam engine ride, a lovely shop and cafe as well as delightful staff.

Truly impressive for a theme seemingly boring! The space is optimized with a range of displays and activities. My 4 year old was quite entertained.

We spent a very nice afternoon there. Our four year old boy cried when it was time to go home so I think it's the best recommendation ;-)

Great experience, not a very big place but well presented. Staff / volunteers very helpful. Spent about 3 hours. My son (KS2) really enjoyed learning about steam engines and steam locomotive ride. Drivers also very friendly and explained how the engine worked. Worth visit and must for school kids.

We were able to park for free in their small car park. Beautiful flower garden with small pond and lots of tadpoles which my 5 year old enjoyed looking at. She also loved the splash zone outside and trail map with stamps. My 13 year old loved the museum and all the science and engineering bits. Mark, a volunteer showed us the underside of the 100" engine. Nice cafe, nice visit, great value deal. Was fairly quiet during the Easter holidays.
