Kids Go Free at the London Museum of Water & Steam this Summer

AN amazing summer is about to happen this July and August with Free entry for children at the London Museum of Water & Steam.

Based at the historic Kew Bridge Waterworks, the London Museum of Water & Steam tells the story of London’s water supply, the site, its people and the water pumping engines that helped make London the city it is today.

What’s happening this summer:

. A summer family trail, designed to ensure kids have a fun and educational visit to the museum.

. Thomas Wicksteed, the mudeum’s narrow gauge railway engine, will be on hand on Wednesdays and weekends, to give visitors unlimited free train rides around the museum site.

. An August Bank holiday seaside special: have fun making a sandcastle on the childrens’ beach, see the vintage steam fire engine, enjoy candyfloss on the Waterworks Railway. There will also be themed crafts for children on the craft desk, as well as pumping engines in action!

. The Hindley Waterwheel, made in 1902 and restored by the Museum in 1993, will be running on July 21, 22, 28 and 29.

. The museum’s unique collection of steam water pumping engines will be in action at weekends. A full engine schedule is available on the website.

. The children’s Splash Zone will be in action throughout the holidays – an ideal way to cool down in the
summer heat!

. The café will be serving summery food and ice creams throughout the day.
