Upminster Windmill and Gardens Open Day

Upminster Windmill and Gardens Open Day

Upminster Windmill has been extensively restored, thanks to generous funding from the National Lottery Heritage Fund and Veolia Environmental Trust and thousands of hours of time from our volunteers.

Our open days offer the opportunity to:
Enjoy the ambience of the 220 year old mill
Experience the marvel of the sails and machinery turning (subject to wind conditions)
Chat to our guides and explore the interpretation material to learn how the windmill worked
On a clear day, experience views across London from the upper windows
Learn more about the history of the site, the recent restoration and the role of wind power through time through digital touchscreen technology in our visitor centre
Relax in the award-winning visitor centre garden
Enjoy tea, coffee and snacks from our refreshment stall
The sails and main drive shaft through the mill will be turning if weather conditions permit.

You can explore the windmill at your own pace, with guides available on each floor to assist and answer questions
