Why not come along to our open days where you can:
Find out about the story of drinking water in our new Discovery Zone.
Enjoy an informative stroll around our Waterworks with everything fully open, restored machinery in operation and our volunteers on hand to explain how it all used to work. If you wish, join a free Guided Tour to find out all about the Waterworks.
See the restored boiler and pumping engine in action!
Children can follow their own trail looking for clues to the story of the site. Can you find ‘Twyford Toad’?
Discover the lime kilns up above the main works, where you can also watch the industrial narrow gauge railway at work. Follow our nature trail around the three acre site and see what you can spot!
Relax in our renowned Tea Room, offering a wide range of hot & cold drinks, sandwiches, toasties, snacks, cakes & ice creams. Please feel free to make use of the picnic tables around the site too.
As well as all of this, our open days usually have additional heritage exhibitors on site - anything from full size traction engines to wood turning demonstrations.
