Green's Windmill is a restored 19th Century tower mill, once home to mathematical physicist George Green. Turning again since 1986, climb to the top of our windmill and see how our sails turn grain into flour. In our interactive Science Centre discover the remarkable story of George Green, and experiment with light, electricity and magnetism. There's something for all the family!

Nice but not lots to do

Visited for the view and you can see for miles from the top of the windmill. Only issue is lack of things to do once there

Fantastic 5th Birthday party for my niece. The activities were well organised and lots of fun. We made delicious biscuits to take with us and did some really exciting experiments. John the Miller led the whole thing superbly and connects well with children and adults alike. Altogether a great experience and certainly a party my niece and her friends will... More

I live 5 minutes from here and until recently had never been. So glad I did, it's wonderful. Very interesting and so nice to see something like this still working. Go along and enjoy.

A working windmill that is really accessible to visitors and also produces flour to sell to those same visitors - excellent! It's free to visit and would appeal to children as well as adults. The location (on a hill as you might imagine) is great for views over the city and there is a community garden being developed as well.... More

This is a quick pit stop but worth visiting as the mill is very well preserved and seeing it in action is fascinating

I love Green's Windmill and I hope that it remains open as it is a local treasure. If we have visitors staying from outside the city it is a venue we like to take them to because it is interesting on so many levels. The little play park with its references to physics is a great little space. The views... More

Adults might find it a little bit boring but it is indeed informative. Children might like it as there is a small science museum here with activities that are suitable for children.
