The Brunel Museum, located in the Brunel Engine House, is dedicated to the works of the great engineer Sir Marc Brunel who built the underwater Thames Tunnel, the first tunnel in the world to be built under a river. The exhibition displays details about the construction of the tunnel by Sir Brunel and his son Isambard Kingdom Brunel. Climb down to see the original cavernous Grand Entrance Hall.
There are guided boat tours from the Embankment tube station on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays, which later take you on a train ride through the tunnel, and a descent into the tunnel. For a walking tour from Bermondsey tube, visit on a Sunday or Wednesday.
