Giant beam engines, the earliest built in 1820, operate under steam and are the largest of their kind in the world. Housed in a Victorian waterworks visited by Dickens, these engines pumped London's water for over 100 years. The interactive 'Water for life' gallery explores the 2000 year history of London's water. We have a steam railway, waterwheel and horse-gin. The massive steam pumping engines are working at weekends and Bank Holidays. Contact the museum for information of special events happening throughout the year.
