London Fire Brigade


Our free, pop-up fire brigade museum has moved to The Workshop, Lambeth High Street, at the rear of the Brigade's former grade-II listed Headquarters.

Alongside modern day fire engines and equipment, visitors will have a rare opportunity to view a selection of the Brigade's video and photographic archives, which highlight the history of Lambeth and its historic landmark building at 8 Albert Embankment.
