Details of the Charity:

Based in the historic buildings of the former Kew Bridge Waterworks, the London Museum of Water & Steam tells the story of London's water supply, the site, its people and the amazing pumping engines that helped to make London the great city it is today.

As well as housing the world’s largest collection of stationary steam pumping engines, the Museum is also home to a narrow-gauge steam locomotive and a Waterworks Gallery that traces the development of London’s clean water supply.
