The Tide Mill welcomes group visits and hosts a number of them every year.

Normally an arrangement is made in advance and Guides are bought in to make sure that numbers can be accommodated. Groups are typically around 40-50 and they are broken into smaller groups of 10-12 people each with a Guide. As the Mill is a confined space split over three floors these smaller groups can start at different stages in the Tide Mill Story so that visitors may move freely. By making an arrangement in advance we can make sure your group gets the best of the Mill and Woodbridge. Advice can be given about parking, eating in the Town and other local attractions to help you time your stay.

It is recommended that you allow up to an hour to visit the Mill’s three floors and outside area.

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.
