London Museum of Water & Steam

Your invitation to experience a historical venue that’s unlike any other.

Housed within the former Grand Junction Water Works, the London Museum of Water and Steam tells the story of how London received its water supply throughout the ages. Built in 1838 the site was responsible for providing clean and safe drinking water to millions of Londoners for almost 200 years. Today the Museum stands as testimony to the genius of Victorian engineering, boasting one of the world’s largest collections of working steam-powered water-pumping engines.

Whatever the event you are planning, the London Museum of Water and Steam invites you and your guests to enjoy it in unique and memorable surroundings. As you drink, dine and dance you will be immersed in the white-hot fire of the industrial revolution.

Our Extraordinary Spaces

The Steam Hall - As the heart of the Museum and the venue’s main space, the Steam Hall is possibly the most memorable place you will ever dine or waltz the night away in. Still in working order the hall houses some of the most remarkable and age-defining engines of the 19th Century.

The Grand Junction Engine House - Built in 1846, this industrial cathedral has three floors, and houses the world’s largest working beam engine. It is a perfect space to explore with an aperitif or two before dining in the Museum’s Steam Hall.

The Waterwheel Courtyard - In the shadow of our iconic 200ft Victorian Standpipe Tower lies the Museum’s courtyard: a charming and fantastically versatile space for any outdoor soiree. The Splash Zone provides fun for the young, and the young at heart, alongside the beautiful 1902 Hindley Waterwheel, and the unforgettable Waterworks Railway.
