All reviews science museum bread making community garden stairs are steep hours free parking free attraction play park short visit lovely little place city centre piece of history children and adults couple of hours worth a trip year olds all ages two hours
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.
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
Visited with my mother and my sons. Spent nearly 2 hours there visiting the windmill, science centre and the adjoining play park (great slide).
The boys enjoyed the science toys, building blocks, mirrors, magnets, electricity generator etc.
Adults enjoyed hot drink and cake, reading the...More
Lovely olde working mill that you can climb to the top of. Really like the new garden area. Interactive section for children and activities running at different times of year. Do buy some of the flour!
Visited one morning during halfterm with my 6 and 4 year old on our visit from Wales.

The windmill itself is very interesting to parents and children, and as another reviewer has mentioned the adjacent car park is free
But it's also possible to book a bread making experience for the children. They all sit supervised at a large table and are...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 Ryan, entrance to the windmill and science centre is free. We do however accept donations for the charity that runs the mill. Work on the exterior has most been completed, and the majority of the scaffolding is currently being reduced to the height of the gallery, which will allow us to operate the mill again over Easter. Best wishes, Jamie Duff, Heritage Development Officer, Green's Windmill Trust
