About the Event

This ride will start in Bermondsey and will ride through Putney, Richmond Park and Teddington before visiting the Kempton Steam Museum which is having an open day. We last did this ride in March 2019 (see photos below). This is a rare opportunity to attend an open day at the world’s largest working triple-expansion steam engine.

You will need to book a ticket for the open day through the Kempton Steam Museum Website tickets cost £10.

Kempton Steam Museum is home to the world’s largest working triple-expansion steam engine. It stands as high as four stacked double-decker buses and along with its identical twin, pumped vast volumes of London’s drinking water from 1929 to 1980. Kempton Steam Museum is the “must visit” international destination celebrating Britain’s industrial heritage and highlighting the importance of conserving and sustaining clean water supplies now and for the future. The museum and its engines are housed within a grand Scheduled Monument located at Thames Water’s Kempton Park Pumping Station in south-west London. The mighty steam engines have been preserved since 1995 by the Kempton Great Engines Trust to ensure that their engineering magnificence is treasured for generations to come.
