Brunel Museum Sinking Shaft

The Thames Tunnel Shaft at the Brunel Museum

The Thames Tunnel Shaft at the Brunel Museum

This atmospheric, underground tunnel shaft is a totally unique experience

Part of the fascinating Brunel Museum in Rotherhithe, this place is like an extraordinary underground cathedral. The performance area is an incredible cylindrical shaft built by Brunel as pedestrian entrance to the Thames Tunnel. This is a unique and atmospheric show. New improved access by ramp and full height doorway gives to a staircase down to the lower chamber. A viewing platform high inside the shaft offers balcony seating for a limited number of people: priority given to those with impaired mobility or using a wheelchair. S

Facilities at this venue include:

  • Toilets in the main museum
  • Museum
  • Café  and Art Galley open every day
  • Midnight Apothecary pop up bar (weekends only)

Please note that the temperature in the tunnel shaft may be cool, so bring some warm clothes. If you have a problem with stairs please let the company know and they can book you seats in the high level viewing platform.
