The Suffolk Coast

Milling Demonstration at Woodbridge Tide Mill 4.00pm

The Tide Mill Living Museum in action at 4.00pm

Step inside the iconic, fully working Tide Mill, a living museum, sitting on the banks of Woodbridge’s River Deben. You will see how the flour is milled, find out how bread is made and learn about all the parts of the machinery and its workings.

Still an authentic working craft mill. Mill regularly when the tides are right, and produce a traditional stoneground wholemeal flour which is supplied to local artisan bakers and is available to purchase.



With friendly wardens to help you make the most of your visit, there’s a host of interactive activities and unique computer generated imagery to help you discover how the grain and ultimately the flour move around the three floors of the mill.

Take the outside board walk see the tidal pond and, on milling days, the huge oak water wheel turned by the water.

Learn about the birds of the River Deben and enjoy the stunning views across the river.

Discover the mill’s fascinating history dating right back to the earliest records in 1170. By the 1950's it had become the last working tide mill in the country.

Thanks to restoration work it is now a fascinating and remarkable living example of our industrial and cultural heritage.

Open daily from 30 March until October when it’s open half term week and weekends only.


Closed November to March.
