  • I only go here for Midnight Apothecary - which happens mainly in the warmer months on Fri and Sat evenings but also the occasion evening for Halloween, Guy Fawkes and Christmas. Unfortunately the latest one - Halloween 2016 didn't live up to the hype or the atmosphere of the previous nights... There was no music (you could hear some coming from the underground shaft) but none for the outdoor area itself with the Halloween theme. The people sat by the fire hogged that space for the whole night when really they should have moved along to allow others to cook marshmallows. One of the cocktails tasted like cough syrup... In general though it just lacked atmosphere and ppl just didn't move around enough to allow everyone to enjoy the limited space to its maximum potential (apple bobbing was available but no one did it when we were there, you really need staff to motivate ppl to get off their seats and into the spirit of things)! Shame really. Luckily the food vendor (they did Greek style wraps with lamb or saganaki) was really very very good.
  • Its a small museum but i was more than happy to attend knowing that my entry fee would be going to developing the museum more. Id like to see it develop over the years to something more detailed. If you catch the London Overground service from Rotherhithe to Wapping (1 stop North) and get off the train there you can actually see the Thames Tunnel, its used by the trains now and is very close to the platform.
  • Great little museum you can spend under 1 hour in. On Saturdays they have midnight apothecary, a cocktail night usually served with delicious Greek souvlaki.
  • Great introduction to one of the world's most famous Civil Engineers. Also a rare opportunity to stand within the brick shaft used to excavate the eighth wonder of the world the Thames Tunnel...
  • A small museum but with some interesting information and video presentation. Have a look in the tunnel shaft, and if you time it right (just before 1pm for us in a Friday) you'll catch the end of a walking tour and their presentation in the shaft. Bring cash, doesn't take card payment.
