Attraction details
Owner description: Mill Green Museum and Mill, in the tiny village of Mill Green between Welwyn Garden City and Hatfield, is a little gem with loads to offer for a fun day out. You can explore the fascinating 300 year old water mill, restored to full working order. Visit the local history museum in the old mill house, bring a picnic or have a tasty cream tea on summer Sunday afternoons, from Easter to September. We are open all year round, Tuesday-Sunday plus bank holidays. We warmly welcome families and groups. There's always something new to see as we change exhibitions regularly. Every school holiday there's lots of things for children to do. We also have a lively events and activities programme.

We live within walking distance of Mill Green but have only just discovered its value. During the summer months on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays, there is an excellent set up offering very nice sandwiches/baguettes, baked potatoes, quiche and of course, cream teas! You get to eat in very pleasant surroundings and the staff are brilliant. We became members of the museum for £10 each so we can now go here and the Roman Baths at Welwyn for free for a year. The mill is fascinating to watch. When I get to Mill Green, I feel like I'm on holiday. To think it is just down the road from where I live!

We got to the mill and paid £2.50 per person which was very reasonable. There was a very well educated gentleman who chatted to us for around 15 mins about the mill and its history. The museum is not very big at all and can easily be got around in half an hour and that would be at a slow pace. We then went for cream tea and spent more time in the small garden at the back than in the museum itself. All in all I would say it is pleasant but don't expect hours and hours of entertainment.

We were staying not far from this so we got on our bikes and rode to the venue.

It's only £2.50 and if it helps preserve local history all well and good. Take your time to look and read items on display.

Check they are open first.

It's very limited what they can do but at least they are trying. Its a great spot to chill and they do food and drinks at certain periods. They also sell the grounded flour as well.

Best wishes to the volunteers.

Visited on open mill weekend, greeted by very friendly staff, told about the offer which we took up. Watched a short demo of bread making, very interesting. Nice little museum. Had a look around the mill, the miller very pleasant man told us about how he started to mill wheel, which we watched start up, our toddler could not stop watching the wheel go around and around. You can by the flour ground there it makes LOVELY bread. The cream teas are a good price too.

This little museum is perfect for taking children to as there is lots to see, but not so large that they get bored. There are a series of little rooms with different exhibitions which seem to change periodically. We saw a marvellous one about farming in the area. Local artists also have displays there. Watching the milling is fascinating and the resulting flour is available to buy for enthusiastic bread bakers. I find it is much better than the more commercial brands.

It is in a lovely setting and the cup of tea and cake or scone finishes the trip off very well.

They also organise bread-making courses which I plan to go to soon.

It is important to check the milling times before visiting as they don't do it every day.
