Kew Bridge Steam Museum
Next to Kew Gardens, the Kew Bridge Steam Museum is located along the Thames, in a pumping station on that used to supply water to the London drinking water network.
The museum includes its original two huge Cornish beam engines with 90″ and 100″ cylinders and fascinating control mechanisms. One of them is in working order. More steam engines of various types have been added to the display.
The Kew Bridge Steam Museum is a steampunk paradise, a must-see if you visit London and love steam. On most week-ends the rotative engines are steaming and you can ride the steam train; from time to time the Cornish beam engine is steaming, check out the calendar for more info.
