About Kempton Steam Museum
Housing two of the largest triple expansion steam engines in the world, each standing 62 ft tall – that’s the height of four London double-decker buses! – the museum has a rich industrial heritage story to tell about the supply of clean drinking water to London right up until 1980.
Learn all about the Kempton Park site and the vital role it played and enjoy the unique opportunity to view working examples of the pinnacle of traditional steam engine development and the transition to turbine technology.
Discover a fascinating part of Britain’s industrial heritage and learn about the importance of conserving and sustaining clean water supplies now and for the future.
