ICE Exhibition – From Source to Tap

22nd March 2019 - 20th February 2020

This exhibition explores the hidden depths of water engineering and the work of behind-the-scenes heroes, who fight fatbergs and flooding, and save lives through the provision of clean water and sanitation.

Featuring inspiring examples of water-related projects around the world,the exhibition is perfect for children and young people, as well as anyone who wants to learn more about engineering.

Explore the zones within the exhibition, including our main displays that walk visitors through various engineering projects that help keep Water Infrastructure supported. Watch films in the ICE Media Cube, explore virtual reality worlds and content on our interactive units and have a go at building some civil engineering models in our activity zone with Lego and building kits.


Discover how the pipes and sewers beneath our cities and homes are facing increasing destruction and damage from the growing ‘Fatberg Monster’. Learn what you can do to help our Superheroes make Fatberg Monster disappear for good.
28 March 2019 marks the 200th Birthday of renowned 19th century civil engineer Sir Joseph Bazalgette. Come and learn about how this major achievement of creating the great sewer network in London helped save thousands of lives in the 1860’s and how his network today is being upgraded by Thames Tideway to meet the demands of London’s growing population for the next 150 years.
