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!

Couldn't believe it was free to get in here. You can check out the windmill and it seems to be milling quite a lot - it was when we went there. You can climb all the way to the top and see all the workings of the mill, plus the miller is there to answer any questions. Flour is for... More

I learned about George Green from a visit to the D H Lawrence Centre at Nottingham University after which I visited the mill. It is hard to believe that a miller with little formal education could write mathematical formulae still used today. Amazing!

A good learning experience for children who are interested in some simple scientific displays and the mill itself is a fine example of its type.

Green's mill is an iconic landmark on the Nottingham skyline. It is very well maintained and a real treasure which should be protected for future generations. The building is beautiful and it stands on a lovely little site on Windmill Lane. This is a popular place to visit for families who appreciate working history. It is also a much-loved landmark...

We just held our daughter's 5th birthday party at the windmill. They made bread , did science experiments including volcano , mentos and coke fountain and they made silly putty. All led by the brilliant John who kept the girls enthused and amazed. All the children loved everything.The parents were blown away by the windmill as a really great traditional... More

We had my grandson (aged 5) for a few days and took him to Greens Mill which he thoroughly enjoyed. Lots of hands on for him.

The windmill is a good place to visit at any time of the year, but the Christmas Carol event is the most popular. I alway go here to buy the stoneground oatmeal. It is really difficult to get anywhere else and it is amazing added to soda bread, scones, muffins and so on. If you like baking it is worth... More

Amazed at how such a simple looking piece of history and experience can be portrayed so easily. Loved the atmosphere and the people working there.

Great place to visit right in the centre of Nottingham. A working windmill in the centre of a City is not something you come by very often. There are lovely views over the parks outside and they have a small visitor centre that sells flour that is made in the windmill and also a science centre that is great for... More

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.
