My wife and I visited The National Trust run Quarry Bank Mill in Styal near Manchester today. As we generally find at NT run sites, the staff are friendly, enthusiastic and passionate. The mill itself is easily helps demonstrate what life was like for those that ran the mills and those who worked there. The Apprentice Lodgings give a real... 更多
Had a really lovely day at QBM. The mill is very interesting with the working demonstrations. The tour of The Apprentice House was very informative, how they slept in those beds is mind boggling. The walk through the North Woods was tiring but worth it as we got to the airport runway road just as The Emirates plane was taking... 更多
Visited here on a very warm sunny Saturday was expecting it to be very busy with all the cars in the car park but we got around to see everything with no crowds at all. Seeing the machines work is very good you can imagine what it was like back in them times. The gardens are a must see as... 更多
Such a great place to visit, particularly liked the demonstrations of the working textile machines showing the process of cotton to cloth. Lots of history. Good Café and shop. Lovely walks but a lot of steps.
Plenty of parking spaces and well organised by the stewards on a busy Easter weekend, this is a huge site with lots to see and do. The Apprentice House is by timed tours so book as soon as you can, the guides in costume are very friendly and informative. There are large gardens to enjoy if the weather is fine... 更多
Very good site with different areas such as mill, gardens. Different areas for picnics etc as well as outdoor tables for those of us with a dog. Indoor cafe also available. All well cared for with lots of information of the Greg family and those who worked at the mill .
Spent about 5 hours at the Mill, which shows how much I there is to see and do. Really interesting, especially the apprentice house tour. The staff are very helpful are keen to answer any questions and demonstrate the working machinery. The gardens are nice and a great place for a picnic if you are taking little ones. Would highly... 更多
The 19th Century isn't really my bag, but I'd seen 'The Mill' on TV and thought this looked quite an interesting place. It is - but it's not cheap, especially if you're paying for an all-adult party - I took my elderly parents, but there was no concession for pensioners. In addition to the entrance fee, there's a £5 parking... 更多
Quarry Bank Mill has become very popular as a result of its use in TV, so its interesting to visit to see the real context of the program. As with all NT properties, its well presented and sets itself in a good historic and social context. The restaurant is not as good as some other locations. As an engineer, I... 更多
We went to Quarry Bank Mill today for the Easter egg trail which was great but ended up with so much more and had a brilliant day out despite the rain. The best thing about the day was the staff/volunteers were so attentive, friendly & all so helpful in every part of the site. It took all the stress out... 更多
Our grandchildren enjoyed the Easter Egg Trail despite the inclement weather, followed by The Mouse Trail in The Mill. Today really was a five star experience, do visit Quarry Bank over the next three days and enjoy a really good day out
