This may be small, but between the science centre and the windmill itself, it kept my two boys (8 and 4) happy for a couple of hours. We paid a couple of pounds for the age-targeted treasure hunts which they each enjoyed completing. I found...More

Very cute spot to visit and learn how the flour used to be made in a windmill. There's also an interesting science museum with loads of interactive activities for the little ones.

When I got there during their opening hours, the windmill tower was not open. I simply don't know what's inside. The small building beside the tower was open, so I had a look inside. A very small exhibition was there showing the history of the...More

A lovely 1-2 hours here. We did a quiz which was well written and made the children read more about the mill than they would perhaps do otherwise. Which is a bonus in my book. The science section is great - I still have no...More

Percfectly walkable from the centre! If you head towards sneiton, and pass where the market would be it’s not far from there. You can use google maps or ask someone to point you in the right direction.

Hi, I wouldn't advise walking from the centre unless you are happy to walk for half an hour or so. There's not much around the windmill and so bare that in mind when you set off!
