A wonderful world of steam

A beautifully crafted museum where the static steam engines that used to power so many aspects of our lives are treasured and brought back to working life through an extraordinary system of steam pipes running throughout the complex of engine sheds.

Highlights include two great engines that raised Tower Bridge and powered the pumps providing water for Dover.

Friendly volunteers are on hand to bring alive these giants from our grandparents past. There’s also a lovely garden and pond, and a super café with delicious homemade cakes. The museum is available for hire for weddings, meetings and other events.

Steam Up Days take place on the first Sunday of the month from May to October and the museum is open for static viewing on Wednesday and Sunday throughout the year.

Recommended length of visit: 1-2 hours.
