I remember being taken to Quarry bank Mill as a young child and always enjoying it. I don't think I appreciated the history surrounding it though. There is so much to see that you definately need a whole day if not more. The apprentice house was very interesting and the mill itself so big and so full of history. It... More

I went with my other half and baby. I would highly advise anyone with a baby planning on looking around the mill to take a sling. As getting round the mill with a buggy would be impossible. Lovely gardens and the food was also great. Very insightful, next time we go I'll be taking my 9 and 7 year old... More

Had a bit of trouble getting there as it is referred to as Styal Mill in some literature but Quarry Bank on the signposts. Nevertheless we had a lovely day here with 3 generations of family! We took grandma aged 69 and two children aged 6 and 3. It was great as grandma was able to offer some personal insights... More

If you're a national trust member then this is a great place, also great if you're not but it saves lots of money if you are. Free parking for national trust members as well as entrance to the mill, gardens and apprentice house. The kids get an explorer pack in the gardens, which is a bum bag with binoculars, magnifying...

A truly great interpretation centre for industrial revolution history. Good for kids and grown-ups. Well staffed with guides. Even good on a rainy day - rare, it must be said in this desert climate. :) Highlight was the Apprentice House, a living history event of the first quality.

Visited here today. After a visit to Dunham Massey yesterday and all the hype given to the WW1 exhibition I thought this NT place beat it hands down in every respect. The staff were knowledgable, interested and interesting. There was so much to see and do and all without feeling rushed or crowded. The location is fantastic. I need to... More

Even though the weather was really grim and wet, we brought our 6year old grandson here to explore. We all had a great time, as it was Halloween, there were extra activities for the children, including searching for bats! So there was the added interest all the way round. Nice lunch too in the cafeteria.

My husband and I visited Quarry Bank on a lovely spring day. We have been here many times before as we live not far away. We came primarily to see the gardens but as we had plenty of time we thought that we would take a look around the site and go around the mill again. From our last visit... More

I came to Quarry Bank Mill when I was in high school about 13 years ago and I was shocked to find how in good condition it all was and how friendly the staff were. I found my way around the site quite easy, well laid out and sign posted. I remembered all the stories that I was told when... More
