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 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

Today we did salt dough modelling and painting, wandered around the science centre which is small but enough to for two small children to be entertained for an hour and... More

The process of making flour seen and explained. The mill is now not working all the time but the web site will aid both in finding the venue and in opening times. I also bought some stone ground flour which has been excellent for making bread. The mill is ideal for small groups and families. Set on an inline, I'm... More

I visited with my husband as he enjoys photography. Great photo's to be taken, interesting history and find out how the mill works. Well worth a visit.

As an adult this place really does not offer any special moment or attraction for you, but I am sure kids will enjoy. It has lovely and very kind and helpful staff working there.

Amazing working windmill in Sneiton, Nottingham. As well as the windmill there is a hands-on maths museum and a lot of history told about the mathematician George Green. There is a cafe, a shop and a great playground for kids. ALL FREE. the volunteer staff are very friendly and extremely helpful. The windmill sails are being rebuilt at the moment... More

took the Grandkids to the baking afternoon and had a great time watching them baking biscuits. Brilliant to go into a working mill and buy the freshly milled flour.

You can visit his windmill and, when the wind allows, see it working and buy our award-winning organic flour. Close to the city with a small car park is the mill and small Science Centre. In the science centre children can play and learn as they discover science and the story of George Green and his achievements. You can play... More
