Celebrating all that has made this little Thames island so famous - from its working boatyards to the part the Eel Pie Island Hotel played in the British Blues explosion of the 1960s and how it helped superstars such as the Rolling Stones, Rod Stewart and Eric Clapton kick start their musical careers.

The Eel Pie Island Museum brings this fantastic history to life - come and see just what this little island in the centre of Twickenham offers in the way of musical and river-related heritage and the creative, inventive nature of many of its inhabitants.

Following the success of the Eelpiland exhibition at the Stables Gallery in 2013 and the pop-up Museum over the summer of 2015, the Eel Pie Island Museum opened in 2017 right in the heart of Twickenham.
