BRENTFORD & ISLEWORTH

The London Museum of Steam and Water, in Kew Bridge Road, is based in a Victorian water pumping station. It’s easily recognisable by its tall brick tower still just about visible in Brentford’s increasingly crowded skyline. See how Londoners got their drinking water and where used water disappears to with a trip to the sewers. The museum boasts a triple expansion steam engine, several Cornish beam engines and the waterworks railway, which runs every weekend from Easter to the New Year. You can’t help but be impressed by the elegance and power of these working machines, whether you think of yourself as a fan or not. The museum is open all year round, seven days a week, 11am until 4pm.
