This was a well-labelled building with plenty of explanation of how the mill worked. You could also buy flour that had been ground there, and it was run by volunteers.
We visited the Tide Mill on a Thursday morning and really enjoyed it. The staff there are very enthusiastic about their subject and really bring it to life. Hearing all about the revonovation in 2011 makes you think how hard all of this must have been back when the mill was first built! In the week you can buy flour,... 更多
We had the mill to ourselves on our trip. The gentleman that showed us around, was so friendly and so informative it was lovely. He so so proud of his role within the mill and took so much pride in what he does. We had a really enjoyable visit and it was thanks to him for bringing the history to... 更多
We visited during the Woodbridge Maritime Festival 2014 (totally accidental - were camping nearby!). It was a really fascinating visit and the staff were excellent at explaining how it all worked.
I was visiting the town I grew up in and it was fascinating to see how the restoration of the Tide Mill has progressed. Took some time to wander round and see the history of the mill and the miller(s) who worked there. Particularly like the tape-recorded voice warning me to mind my head!
This is a great place to see history actually working. A working flour mill that is dependant on the tides. Flour is milled and sold here to fund raise to maintain the mill and keep it going. It is staffed by very enthusiastic volunteers who readily answer questions. A value for money place to visit and the last tidal mill... 更多
The guy at reception was extremely helpful and friendly, it was a glorious sunny day and it was a pleasant way to spend some time, learning about a Mill that is somewhat out of the ordinary. The principle is the same as other mills - it is the energy required to move the stones that is different and that is... 更多
We were so luck to have been there on a day that the mill was milling the flour. Please check the website for days that this is happening. We have been before and that was good but this was amazing to see. You get so involved with it and the guides are so nice and knowledgeable. Definitely worth a visit... 更多
We took our grandchildren aged 3 and 5 years, they were both fasinated to see the waterwheel turning and had great fun with the interactive features. They enjoyed finding the naughty mice hidden around the mill and received a small gift for finding all 12 mice. To advoid disappointment, make sure you check out the Tide Mills web site to... 更多
What a super visit this is! The Mill is a truly fascinating part of local history and has undergone many refurbishments during its lifetime. The entrance level has a seated area to the right showing a fifteen minute film detailing the life of the Mill. The ticket desk is staffed by very friendly and knowledgeable locals. Flour produced on site... 更多
