The London Museum of Water and Steam is recognised as one of the most important historic sites of the water supply industry in Britain. Its collection of original Victorian steam pumping engines includes the largest working Cornish beam engine in the world as well as fascinating objects that tell the story of London’s past.

The fascinating collection showcases the evolution of steam engine technology over the centuries in exhibits from the engine houses, to the rotative engines and of course the Cornish engines. In addition you'll also see examples of diesel, electric, water and animal powered pumping engines.

With working steam engines and a narrow gauge railway in operation every weekend, as well as interactive exhibits and an interactive family Splashzone, it’s a must for any visitor to the capital.
