Wheels and stones turn, grinding the grain as they have done for many hundreds of years.

Book online for a weekend visit and experience history through visual insights, unique computer generated imagery and children’s activities to discover how the grain and flour move around the Mill.

Woodbridge stands on the A12, the road that links London and Lowestoft and on the rail line that links Ipswich with Lowestoft. From either direction follow signs to Woodbridge and take any entrance into the town. The Tide Mill is by the river and accessible from several car parks. See the Plan Your Visit page for more details.

Woodbridge Tide Mill is a Grade I listed building dating back to 1793. As you can imagine this, together with the building being over three floors, does give us some challenges in being able to provide equitable access. Click the button to find out more.
