The main gate, note the museum entrance to the left. Ignore the red light.

Entrance to the left, ignore the red light.

Access to the site is via a driveway off Snakey Lane. We are on Thames Water land and there is a large security gate straight ahead. If the Museum or Railway are open there is a gate to the left of the main gate that will be open. A security guard inside the gates will direct you to the car park. If you want to gain access at any other time you must either push the intercom button and ask the control to open the gate or call security on the number posted on the gate. The pedestrian only gate under the A316 at the rear of the site is not in use at the moment.


Don’t forget, if you are coming to see us and it is NOT an “OPEN DAY” or similar event, then it is essential that you let us know before-hand as you will need assistance to pass the security gate. This applies whatever means of Transport you are using.
