Mill Green Museum and Mill, in the tiny village of Mill Green between Welwyn Garden City and Hatfield, is a little gem with loads to offer for a fun day out. You can explore the fascinating 300 year old water mill, restored to full working order. Visit the local history museum in the old mill house, bring a picnic or have a tasty cream tea on summer Sunday afternoons, from Easter to September. We are open all year round, Tuesday-Sunday plus bank holidays. We warmly welcome families and groups. There's always something new to see as we change exhibitions regularly. Every school holiday there's lots of things for children to do. We also have a lively events and activities programme.

You could probably get the mill part of the attration done in about an hour then there is a place which sells cream... More

We were not sure what to expect on our first visit to this museum, but it was an absolute gem. Three galleries of changing exhibitions, well laid out and very informative. Although it wasn't a milling day the miller was there to talk to us about the mill and its history. We will definitely visit again.

Hidden gem in Hatfield. Small charge to visit. Working water mill, fantastic to stand and watch the huge wooden paddle turn in the water and walk around the mill at work. Small shop selling souvenirs and flour from the mill. Small interesting local museum with an area for changing exhibitions. Museum runs occasional workshops in bread making and crafts. Check...

Went to the Mill for their Craft event on Sunday 5th October. Lots of demonstrations from Chair Caning, Woodturning, Spoon Carving, Willow Work, Bread Making and many more. Ploughman's Lunches and Cream Teas were also served in the garden area. All the displays were under cover and although the weather was good it made it more interesting and compact. The... More

Lovely place for an afternoon tea. Romantic little garden, the water from the mill is running close by. Mill museum is tiny but cute.

Visited with a lot of elderly friends just for a cream tea. What a lovely time they all had. Although we never went into the museum we sat in the garden & had delicious sandwiches , scones & a proper pot of tea. They then looked round the garden & at the old newspapers on the walls & noticeboards and... More

Small and original fully working water mill. We had a in depth chat with the miller who showed us what was what and told us the ages of various parts of the mill. He was very informative and we were sorry to hear that he was about to leave for pastures new. Hopefully his replacement will have the same amount... More

Really interesting to see how a water mill works. Staff are friendly and helpful and you can get a cream tea in the garden with scones made from the flour from the mill. Pretty setting outside and child-friendly Victorian room sets inside. Plan to go somewhere else as well though - it's only small. Hatfield House is close by.

A small but interesting and friendly place to visit. The food is also good, especially the bread for some reason!

This is a great museum built around a working water mill. On some days you can even grind your own flour. The sheer energy of the large wheels when they get going is amazing. Beautifully laid out and friendly, helpful staff and volunteers on hand. Great place for both young and old. You can get refreshments, too.
