Easter Sunday: Guided Tour Day

 

11am – 4pm

 

Come and enjoy a guided tour around the whole site to discover how Twyford Waterworks has provided clean water for generations of Hampshire people, and a chance to see ‘behind the scenes’ at this historic site. The tours are suitable for all ages, but please note that there are steps in places.

 

Each tour will last approximately 1 - 1½ hours and will take you on a journey from various methods of water extraction through softening and filtering, describing the techniques and explaining the machinery which form part of this fascinating aspect of our heritage.

 

Stay after the tour to enjoy our tea room, the Waterworks and our wildlife trail around our 3 acre site at your leisure. Volunteers will be on hand to answer any questions that you may have.

 

Our renowned Tea Room offers a wide range of hot & cold drinks, sandwiches, toasties, soup, snacks, cakes & ice creams, all at a reasonable price. Please feel free to make use of the picnic tables around the site too.

 

Tours start every 30 minutes from 11.00am.

 

Admission is just £5 for adults, £4 for concessions and children under 16 are free. There is ample free parking.

 

Please note: we do not run the machinery on guided tour days.

 

Price: £5 for adults, £4 for concessions and under 16s free
