Just spent a wonderful afternoon at quarry bank mill. It was our first visit. We should have arrived in the morning as there was so much to see and do. The apprentice house tour was excellent and along with a "rushed" mill tour we throughly enjoyed ourselves. As we missed so much, the gardens, the village, some of the displays... More

Be you engineer, dress maker, gardener, history buff (or even plane spotter!) you will not be disappointed. We "did" the Mill first and the place seemed never ending. So many levels and machinery, much of it working, with staff demonstrating the processes and techniques. Less than two hours in the building and you have probably not done it justice. We... More

Visited here with my husband last Monday (14th July) and had a really enjoyable day. Very nice gardens to explore, however there are some steep steps. Fascinating to look around the mill and see the machines working. The guided tour around the Apprentice House was great (timed tickets only which we booked on arrival). It gave us a real insight...

Went to Quarry Bank off the back of The Mill TV series - amazing place, lots to see and if you go on a sunny day take a picnic/eat in the restaurant and you'll get a whole days worth of things to so walking around the estate as well as the Mill.

We have now been twice. Once as a couple, to see what the mill had to offer, and again with our granddaughter. It's a fantastic place. So evocative of the era it represents, and so cleverly presented to grab the imagination and interest of young and old alike. A wonderful insight into the past, and a very enjoyable "education" for... More

I've never been to Quarry Bank Mill before, surprising as I lived in Wilmslow for several years....recently visited and was amazed at the size of the place and the fantastic gardens surrounding it. We visited for an evening of outdoor theatre, and will be returning soon to see the Mill in all it's glory during the daytime..... can't wait!!!!

We had a one night stopover at Manchester airport, so went to Quarry Bank Mill for the afternoon. Very close to the airport and well worth a trip. The grounds are lovely, we had a picnic there and a good walk around.

As members of the NT we visited Quarry Bank whilst on holiday and were very impressed with the whole site, and it was great to see the machinery actually running. Its best to allow most of the day if you want to see and do everything.

We visited Quarry Bank with 2 children under 5. We have NT membership so didn't have to pay to park or visit individual attractions so value for money wasn't an issue. We visited the restaurant and the Mill. The restaurant is ok but with children we struggled with the following - no hot food can be ordered until 12pm (ideally... More
