Marvel at fine British engineering at the Brunel Museum, Rotherhithe
A plan by: Matthias

The Brunel Museum is housed in the Brunel Engine House in Rotherhithe commemorates the Thames Tunnel, the world's first tunnel under navigable waterway. It was built using Marc Isambard Brunel's newly invented tunnelling shield technology, by him and his son Isambard Kingdom and opened in 1843. Some regard the Thames Tunnel as a precursor to London's tube system and the Channel Tunnel wouldn't have been possible without Brunel's contribution.

Near Rotherhithe is the slipway where the Great Eastern was launched from, Isambard's Hungerford Bridge and Tower Bridge which Isambard's son Henry worked on as a structural engineer

The museum is open seven days a week from 10am - 5pm.
