In the mill we ate in the quite reasonable cafeteria, saw the Circus show put on by the circus school which was excellent, had fun in the mirror maze, let the kids play in the soft play area and had a bit of fun in the antique arcade. The whole place seems a little behind the times but that kind... More

we stumbled into this area of the site having missed the last presentation of the day but we did enjoy seeing the machines, materials and tools employed to make the wonderful handcrafted paper that they historically produce. We did watch a good video, on the site overall, while we in this section.

A staff member in period costume demonstrates how paper used to be hand made and lets the kids have a go afterward. There is a display of the old machinery that was once used in the making of paper - from rags to the finished product. Quite interesting.

It was interesting but the girl who carried it out, whilst very knowledgeable, was clearly in a hurry. We had two children with us who were looking forward to making some paper, as was on offer, but she just finished her talk and demo and left. They were very disappointed

This was in the advert for WOOKEY Hole and the grandchildren had been looking forward to watching it for a school project and it was not in operation. A notice said that due to the age of the machinery it was unprepared. Given that it was a school holiday that we visited I would have expected that the staff would... More

This is a great eclectic addition to the whole Wookey Hole attraction but not big enough for a visit just to see the paper mill. The whole thing is certainly worth a visit and see the Paper Mill while you are there. We had a great day.

What a disappointment. Me and my husband at least thought this part of the day would be interesting. It's not a paper mill, just a room with some old paper making equipment in it. The only bit that's (sort of) in use is a big dip tank with paper fibres in it. The tour guide scoops out some fibres on... More

Out of all the displays and things to do at Wookey Hole, this was probably the most disappointing. The staff throughtout Wookey Hole were pleasant and enthusiastic apart from this where they were just going through the motions. My seven year old son thought they would get a small piece of paper to take home, but in reality you watched... More
