Venue Information

Venue Description:
The London Museum of Water and Steam is housed in the old Kew Bridge Waterworks and has one of the largest collections of working Victorian steam engines in the world. The Waterworks was responsible for providing the capital with safe drinking water for over a century following the cholera epidemic. Today the Museum is a not-for-profit charity whose mission is to tell the story of London’s water supply and to maintain the engines of the industrial revolution for generations to come.

In a room full of steam engines, this usual space plays for a unique experience for our opera audiences!
