Unusual Building Hire

Woodbridge Tide Mill is a beautiful, if relatively small, space that, in the right circumstances, may be used as a venue.

The Mill is allowed to have 50 visitors in it at any time to meet fire regulations and abide by its insurers requirements. Furthermore the Mill is an 800 year old, unheated, wooden building next to water and so at certain times of the year it is cold.

That having said the Mill has hosted pop-up restaurants over its three floors as well as presentations, book launches and private parties to select audiences in the past. It makes for a quirky venue to host such smaller gatherings during which catering and Guides can be provided if required.

If you agree, and are planning an event, then why not contact us at enquiries.woodbridgetidemill@gmail.com with your requirements and we’ll see if we can help.

And don’t forget: Friends of Woodbridge Tide Mill Living Museum get a lower rate.

Woodbridge stands on the A12, the road that links London and Lowestoft and on the rail 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.
