Guided Tour of The Brickworks Museum Swanwick Thursday 16 May 2024

This will be a “guided tour” of The Brickworks Museum in Swanwick near Southampton ( . It is the only steam driven brickworks in the UK to be Grade II listed.

This will be a self-drive trip meeting at Wickes at 09:30 on the 16th May. This will enable people to car share reducing the number of cars travelling to the Brickworks. If you need a lift to Wickes car park let me know and that can be arranged.

The proposed timetable is the following:

  • Leave Wickes 09:30
  • Arrive at Swanwick Brickworks approx. 10:30
  • Time available when we arrive for comfort break and orientate and make ourselves known to guide and maybe have a tea or coffee in the Café before starting the tour.
  • The tour will start at 11:00 and will be fairly informal with questions being welcomed.
  • After the tour there is a café available onsite with a range of light lunch options (attached is the menu)
  • The site also houses the Southampton and District Transport Heritage Trust ( and a Penny Arcade ( where the machines can actually be played on purchasing old pennies on site.
  • The cost for the trip is £8.00.

If you wish to come on this trip, please pay £8.00 to the Anton U3A business account No: 71587986, Sort Code 40-08-28 with the reference Brickworks and your Membership No: I need to have final numbers confirmed by 30th April 2024 as the Brickworks need notice to organise guides.
