Explore the mill

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

Visit The Tide Mill, Woodbridge, one of only a handful in the world still producing flour on a regular basis and among the first tide mills in the country, working on the same site for over 850 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. Most days you can even see the huge oak water wheel turning.

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.
