Crampton Tower Museum is a family-friendly museum celebrating the life and work of a Victorian engineer, transport and local history.
Crampton Tower Museum, Broadstairs is a fascinating small museum, partly housed in a flint tower adjacent to the Broadstairs Railway Station. The tower formed part of Broadstairs' first public water supply.
Thomas Russell Crampton is perhaps chiefly remembered as a designer of locomotives and railways, but he was also involved with gas, water works and the submarine telegraph cable. He was the first to succeed in laying an effective telegraph cable under the English Channel.
Adults £3, Child (4-16yrs) £1.50, Family Ticket £7.50 (2 Adults & 2 Children).
See website for details of events throughout the year.
Apart from the Tower itself, the rest of the building is accessible to wheelchair users.
The Tower is accessed by a winding staircase with no lift or ramp alternative. A steward is available to assist at the entrance. There are areas to sit and read information about the exhibitions.
The toilets are wheelchair-accessible, and the nearest accessible parking is behind Broadstairs Library, approximately 100 metres from the Museum.
Quiet days and special tours can be arranged by appointment.
