The Waterworks Museum is wholly run by volunteers which means that the number of private group visits we can offer in any year are limited.
Please also note that the large engines may be drained down for safety reasons from November to March.
A pre-booked group visit comprises of:
- 2 hour visit
- Tea, coffee and biscuits on arrival
- Introductory talk
- Guided tour of the Museum (typical group size up to 10)
If your group can visit the Waterworks Museum on a Tuesday the above is offered at £2/head on top of standard admission price.
If your group can visit on one of the Museum’s family open days a guided tour can be offered at £1/head on top of standard admission price. Depending on the special attraction on the day of your visit it may, or may not, be possible to provide an introductory talk. If this is provided, there would be no additional charge.
Please Note: The above applies to pre-booked visits only.
