About Walthamstow Pumphouse Museum

Walthamstow Pumphouse Museum is located in a Grade II listed old Victorian pumping station. The museum holds a fascinating collection of vintage transport vehicles, memorabilia and equipment. It's a must visit for any transport fan!

Things to do

Steam Engines

The museum has a pair of old Marshall steam engines and a collection of smaller engines. You can see them running on the last Sunday of every month. Kids will love to see how transport from the past operated.

Fire Station

Does your little one want to be a fireman or woman when they grow up? Then, they will enjoy exploring the museum's large collection of fire-fighting equipment. Discover what was used in Victorian times through to modern day.

Board a London Tube Carriage

A really exciting part of any visit to the Walthamstow Pumphouse Museum is the chance to board a real London Tube carriage as it would have looked in 1967. Little ones will love sitting on the seats and exploring the carriage. You don't often get the chance to get on board empty tube carriages in London! This museum attraction is popular with filmakers and photographers.

Model Railway

Thomas the Tank Engine fans need to keep an eye out for the beloved little engine chugging around the model railway. The model railway at Walthamstow Pump Museum shows the Liverpool to Chingford Railway Line over a range of time periods.

The museum is entirely volunteer run and free to enter but they welcome donations.

Special Events

There are a variety of special events held at the museum throughout the year including an underground dining experience. This unique experience allows you to enjoy dining from a Latin inspired menu in the vintage tube carriage.
