Green's Windmill is a restored 19th Century tower mill, once home to mathematical physicist George Green. Turning again since 1986, climb to the top of our windmill and see how our sails turn grain into flour. In our interactive Science Centre discover the remarkable story of George Green, and experiment with light, electricity and magnetism. There's something for all the family!

Free parking and free entrance to a small interesting science-based museum/activity centre, interesting windmill and its history, and great views over Nottingham. Really nicely put together little attraction and worth finding it in the back streets of Nottingham suburbs.

Hi, I wouldn't advise walking from the centre unless you are happy to walk for half an hour or so. There's not much around the windmill and so bare that in mind when you set off!
