What's here

We’ve some absolutely unique displays and information focused on the Big Three issues – Energy, Transport and Food.

  • Come explore the world of renewable Energy: harnessing the power of the Wind, the Sun and the Sea
  • Take a closer look at Transport of the future: and see how we’ll all get around in a world without Oil
  • Learn how, with Food, our small choices make a big difference.

You might like to climb our Windmill, it’s the only one open to the public in the world. Climb the 300 steps and experience a modern Windmill from the heart of the machine, inside the viewing platform designed for us by Sir Norman Foster – it’s a very special experience.

Watch our giant solar tracker as it follows the sun across the sky and harnesses its power to make clean energy.

Take a close look at the Greenbird, the World record holding, fastest wind powered vehicle on the planet.

Wander through our Organic Gardens and Orchard, bump into the only Windmill Blade to survive an ‘alien abduction’ and find out the true story behind that.

We’ve a Cinema and Theatre and a super Café – all our food is organic and locally sourced wherever possible, so local, that it often travels no further than from our back garden.

And no trip is complete without a visit to Ecotopia, our shop, which harnesses the power of shopping to change the world. Everything here supports a better way of doing things – whether it's local, Fairtrade, organic or sustainably sourced. There's a social, ethical or environmental benefit inherent in everything we sell.
