I took my 4yr old in the Windmill today, she thoroughly enjoyed it. We had a guide to ourselves who was willing and able to adapt his tour to interest a small child (especially with the bug hunt!) Very, very reasonably priced; and the chocolate cake in the cafe after was delicious! Thank you to all the volunteers.

The tallest windmill in Lincolnshire. There is a small tea-room on the 1st floor, and although unable to go right up into the cap [health & safety] there is sufficient explanation to be able to understand the workings. Interactive computers for children and those with mobility difficulties. Disabled access is provided to the first floor. The restoration has been undertaken... More

We visited on a cold winter day and luckily we were warned to wear warm clothing as the temperature as we climbed the mill was really cold. The tea rooms provide a focal point for lots of enthusiastic locals, and our tour guide was knowledgeable and friendly. There were no other guests on our tour, so we were able to... More

A really interesting place to visit. It's Britans tallest windmill and you don't realise how tall until your inside. It can be very hard to climb with small children but staff are extremely helpful and work hard to accomidate your needs. There is also a lovely tea room that's worth having a visit too.

Six of us visited here. You can go to the top of the windmill if you want to, none of us did though!! The cafe served basic but tasty food. Well worth a visit.

My wife and I were the only visitors at the time as it was raining. We were shown around by a knowledgeable volunteer. We went up seven flights and stopped at each flight where everything was explained. From the top we saw the smallest fish and chip shop we have seen, from tallest tower mill in the UK (80' ),...

At 100 feet high, Moulton Windmill is the tallest in the country. It dates back to 1822. Commercial use of the mill ended in 1995. In 1998 a group of local people was formed with the aim of restoring the mill. That it is now open to the public is testament to their success. The mill is dependent entirely on... More

Perfect afternoon visit, lunch followed by a tour. Excellent guide, the details he provided really gave you a sense of what it would have been like in the 19th and early 20th century. My 11 year old was engrossed. Thank you.
