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!

We've been wanting to see this windmill for a few years and we weren't disappointed. Shown around by a guy who cared about the windmill and was very informative. Well worth a visit.

The university of Nottingham has maintained this traditional windmill in full working condition. It's amazing to see the way it functions and makes the flour. There are small trails for the children which are very well done. Highly recommended

Went to visit our daughter and she lives near the windmill. It is a lovely place to take young children and the tea and coffee is very reasonably priced. We bought some organic oats and they too are a good price and absolutely delicious.

Hi, I wouldn't advise walking from the centre unless you are happy to walk for half an hour or so. There's not much around the windmill and so bare that in mind when you set off!
