Kew Bridge Steam MuseumIf you're into steam-powered stuff or simply have a penchant for the unusual and unique then the Victorian Kew Bridge Steam Museum is more than worth a visit. The world's largest collection of steam pumping engines is housed in a magnificent 19th century pumping station near the river at Kew, where visitors can admire some of the largest beam engines of their kind in the world whilst also finding out about the history of water supply in London. Follow in the footsteps of Charles Dickens, who also visited the site, as you see the celebrated Cornish engines at work. The steam pumping engines comes alive almost every weekend as the engines are set to work, powering a magnificent waterwheel and steam railway, which transports visitors around the site. Special events take place throughout the year.

Best for:
Steam engines, steam trains and waterwheels.
