We were going to go to Matlock but then we thought the place would be busy and we didn't fancy that with lockdown so close so we came here. The wife and I really enjoyed it but the daughter got bored halfway through and just sat down. Really interesting building and what they did there. Forgot to take photos inside, sorry.

Hi Rob, thank you so much for taking the time to review us - we're a small site and every review helps! Thank for for being very honest too with your review - we are hoping to increase the offering for children and young people within the museum. If you have a moment or two to spare, and your daughter is willing to let us know what would have made her experience better, please do drop me and email at: manager@belpernorthmill.org.uk. We are aiming to diversify the experience we offer to reach a younger audience, so it would be great to hear any feedback. Thanks again, Kat - Manager

Covid restrictions meant that we could only experience this fascinating attraction as part of a tour, but what a tour it was! Our tour guide (whose name sadly escapes us but might have been Paul) really brought the industrial revolution to life, taking us through the lives of the great and good whose technological advances made Belper, and Britain, what it is today, as well as giving us an insight into what lives were like for the workers in the new mill. It's a must If you're staying in Belper so you can understand the history of the town as you walk through, but it's well worth travelling for too. While you're there you can go for a walk in the river gardens, built by the Strutts for workers' promenading. Unfortunately, we went too late in our trip to make one of the regular walking tours through the town but make sure you check ahead and see if one's available - if they're half as informative as the mill tour then your head might explode! Keep up the good work!

We booked in last minute and are really glad we did. The museum is only open Friday to Sunday at the moment for guided tours. Our guide was friendly and knowledgeable and really helped us understand the part the cotton industry played in the history and growth of Belper. There is a small gift shop with a decent range of books themed towards mills and Derbyshire. Well worth visiting this mostly volunteer run museum.

Very interesting guided tour. Fascinating original cotton spinning machinery from the Industrial Revolution. We got reduced admission from ticket to Crich Tramway museum (also worth visiting).

Hi Jonathan, thank you for reviewing us, we are a small museum and appreciate every review that we get! I'm glad you also took advantage of the Derbyshire Day out Discount and used it at Crich! in 2020 we have more businesses that are taking part too, so you can use this with them! Thanks again!
