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!

The wee man and I both enjoyed it, and not least because it's free. The parking is a bit odd - there is plenty, and it's actually not far, but it doesn't appear that way at first sight - but just go through the park and you're there

Just round the corner from us. We go regularly and it never lessens in its ability to delight us. Great hands on science experiments for the kids to engage with. Have been to several workshops there and loved them all - best one was pizza baking. We have done the tours up the mill on more than one occasion and... More

Well worth a visit. Rang first to check if the mill was open as one web site said it was open on Wednesdays and another said it wasn't. Took the number 43 bus from the centre of Nottingham and took less than 10 minutes to reach the mill. A lovely attraction which was free! (Donations are of course welcomed but... More

A working windmill with milled flour for sale. A climb up steep ladders inside, to nearly the top of the windmill, is well worth the effort for the views alone. When the sails are going round it's even more interesting! The milling processes can be seen on each floor, with information on hand to find out more.Fascinating for all ages.

Came here on an open day - bought some flour. It was a beautiful sunny day. There's a park at the bottom of the hill so great for kids. You can go into the windmill itself and see how things are done. There is a tea room and a shop which sells some great bits and bobs, including flour, books,... More

We took our 7 and 2 year old and they both enjoyed it. Trails to purchase for a small sum, which children love doing and lots to do in the visitor centre. The people who run Green's are knowledgeable and enthusiastic with a warm welcome. You can happily spend a couple of hours here, away from the busy city centre.

I have very fond memories of coming here as a child, and it was lovely to be able to come back here so many years later with our two year old little girl and her Nana. I was glad to see the science museum was still there, we enjoyed checking out all the exhibits, my daughter seemed very impressed with... More

Nice view from this working windmill near Nottingham, staff are friendly and you are welcome to wander around the mill yourself, if the wind is strong enough then you may even see it milling!
