Windmill tours

Over 150,000 people have already climbed our windmill and a few brave souls have even jumped off it... abseiling for charity. It's a unique and special experience.

Now it's your turn to come and climb the only windmill in the world open to the public. It's 300 steps up a spiral staircase with two rest platforms on the way. You can stop at each one for a breather and to learn how we built the windmill and how it harnesses the power of the Wind to make electricity.

The viewing platform at the top was designed for us by the famous architect Sir Norman Foster and when you reach it you'll get to experience a modern windmill from the heart of the machine, and enjoy the panoramic view.

Tours are really popular so we recommend you book in advance. Kids love climbing the windmill – but they must be seven or over and at least 120cm tall. 

You can call us on 01760 726100 to find out more or book your tour.
