Abbey Pumping Station

Free

Abbey Pumping Station is a 19th-century sewage pumping station that is the site of Leicester’s science and technology museum.

The museum features England’s largest working steam beam engines, which were originally used to pump almost one million litres of sewage every hour. Related exhibits can be found in the Flushed With Pride exhibition, which includes the country’s only interactive toilet as well as a display of sewers, water pipes and a talking toilet! Other displays include a historic car collection and a display of old cinema equipment.
