Green's Windmill is a restored 19th Century tower mill, once home to mathematical physicist George Green. Turning again since 1986, climb to the top of our windmill and see how our sails turn grain into flour. In our interactive Science Centre discover the remarkable story of George Green, and experiment with light, electricity and magnetism. There's something for all the family!

It's lovely to explore the mill and see it in sail and then wander around the exhibition area. It's great for kids as there is lots of hands on learning activities, yet it also manages to cater for the adults with the history.

I recall the first time I saw Green's Windmill - I was in a hotel room, and when I looked out of the window I saw a windmill on the horizon. Being new to Nottingham at the time I thought I was seeing things! It was the last thing I expected to see. I went wandering the next morning to... More

The car park was full of rubbish and a smashed up car. After walking through the grounds, which were full of weeds and empty drinks cans, we went into the mill. The person working in the mill didn't speak or explain what he was doing. Very dissapointing. We stayed for 15 minutes and left. Embarrassing for Nottingham, the state of... More

Thank you for your review. Unfortunately, the car park and grounds outside the mill are the responsibility of Nottingham City Council, and it's a constant problem for us. The mill and yard itself are run by the Green's Windmill Trust, which is why that area is much more kept. Sorry our miller didn't seem very welcoming though : ( More

This original Windmill offers a Science Museum where children on school visits, etc, can have hands on experiments - brilliant.

We popped up to see the windmill on a dry Thursday morning and it was of course empty. We were the only people there apart from the staff. This isn't a problem and we were allowed into the windmill without a guide. We started at the top and worked down. A couple of little films were available too. If you... More

Excellent value and quirky interesting science facts. Extremely friendly & helpful staff. We spotted the windmill out of the hotel window and decided to take a walk and explore. It is a working mill & you can buy the flour.

As a Nottingham resident we go to the mill few times a year. On a normal weekend day there's an interactive museum, a cup of tea and a trip to the too of the mill to take in the views and learn about how four in milled. In the museum you can learn about the scientific contributions of former owner... More

The windmill is located on a small hill in Sneinton (Eastern part of Nottingham). Walking up is a nice exercise on a Saturday morning and takes only about 25 minutes from Nottingham city centre. Mill and the whole centre are opened to public and are fully functional, meaning that the flour is being produced whilst you are walking around the... More

We spent about three hours here during half term. The weather was horrid but that didn't stop the staff from being very friendly and going out of their way to give lots of information about the mill and future events. Admission is free but we paid £3 for our daughter to participate in the salt dough activity and this included... More
