London Museum of Water and Steam opens its doors after a major refurbishment in March 2014. Come and discover the story of London's water supply and witness stationary steam pumping engines in action.

The museum is also home to London's only narrow gauge railway which visitors can ride as part of their admission every weekend. As a result of the refurbishment, visitors can now enjoy the new Waterworks interactive gallery with hands on exhibits that bring the story of London's water supply to life.

Prepare to get wet in the outdoors Splashzone where little and big kids can turn wheels, gears and pumps to move water by hand to create amazing outcomes. Witness the awe and magic of stationary steam pumps including the world's largest operating beam engine every weekend.

After all that, relax and refuel in the Stokers Café where you will be able to choose from a range of hot and cold drinks and treats.
