VISITS TO CROSSNESS DURING 2016

The Crossness Engines Trust is working on the completion of landscaping work and the installation of an exhibition which explains the importance of the site with the objective of opening the whole site, including the buildings, much more frequently to visitors.

On Tuesdays and Fridays (from 10:00 to 16:00) and on the second Sunday in every month (from 10:00 to 14:00), you are welcome to visit the site to view the gardens and grounds only and to admire the buildings.  Access is only via the Thames pathway where we have a gate on the Northwest (Thamesmead) corner of our site. You will not be able to enter the buildings on these days unless they form part of a pre-programmed visitor day. These arrangements are in addition to those visiting dates shown below.


Our proposed visiting dates for 2016 are as follows:

Minibus service

There will be NO minibus service operating on our Steaming Day - Sunday 24th July.

There WILL be a minibus service for the following Steaming Days: 

   Sunday 4th September

   Sunday 9th October

However, due to possible Engineering Works which may take place between Plumstead and Dartford on those days our minibus will operate to and from Plumstead station ONLY.   It will NOT call at Abbey Wood.

Our minibus will pick up at Plumstead station from the booking office side at 10.00am and thereafter at approx. 30 minute intervals throughout the day.

The last bus from Crossness will leave the site at 4.30pm to return to Plumstead station.

Crossrail

Customers should be aware of  possible disruptions to train services to and from Abbey Wood BR station during our programme of events for 2016. It is therefore recommended that people intending to travel to Crossness by train check the service availability with British Rail beforehand.

Details of our Guided Tours:

If you want to learn more about London's Victorian sewer system why not come along to one of our guided tours?

You'll be able to listen to a talk on the history of the system and the site and then participate in a guided tour of the Grade I listed buildings and the massive beam engines (but note that Prince Consort will not be in steam).

The cost of tea and biscuits is included in the charge for the event.

You will park in our new car park in Bazalgette Way (formerly Belvedere Road) and use the new access path into the site (a distance of about 500metres).  Pedestrians and cyclists can also use that route or gain access via the Thames Path.
