Pumphouse Educational Trust and Museum

The museum is located on land that until 1970 was part of the Surrey Docks. After these closed, the area was refurbished and the old pumphouse became a museum. It also houses the Rotherhithe Heritage Museum which contains artefacts from Roman times to the present day.
