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' ),...

Beautifully kept conservation village with s beautifully restored windmill. Tour guides well informed and very knowledgeable. Staff in cafe in shop, helpful and informative. Delicious sandwiches and homemade cakes and excellent variety. Great selection of gifts in shop on same floor as cafe. Wheelchair access by lift. Surrounding views were amazing. Have already recommended to friends and family.

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.

We got lucky when we visited.... It was very quiet. It just meant we had the guide all to ourselves ☺ A very informative tour, plus was able to ask lots of questions, and there are little fluffy bugs for the kids to spot on the way round aswell [and a prize for spotting them all]. To round it off,... More

Had my daughters christening here and the mill catered for the whole event. The food was delicious and plentiful and I received many compliments from our guests. Really good bunch of staff/volunteers and a lovely place to visit or have an event. Couldn't recommend them highly enough

We visited the windmill and learned lots of interesting facts about the building and how it's uses. Not for anyone of limited mobility due to lots of winding stairs but breathtaking views and helpful guides. Kids (7 and 9) were a little bored by the end but the grown ups could have stayed longer!

The tallest working mill in the UK deserves a visit and a tour, and this is exactly what we did on a Sunday afternoon. The tour takes just over an hour; you will climb up the 96 steps that take you to the top of the tower and learn all about its history and the engineering that made this 19th... More
