Plan your visit

Opening 2022

We’re bringing Shrewsbury Flaxmill Maltings back to life so everyone can enjoy it.

Everything is being made ready for you to visit in 2022.

There will be a new visitor experience on the ground floor of the Main Mill with an exhibition involving hands-on activities and engaging tours.

If you visit on your own, with friends or family, or as a school, coach or community group, you’ll be able to enjoy learning about this unique survivor of the Industrial Revolution.

When you’re done exploring you will be able to relax in the new café or browse the new gift shop.

All the information you will need to plan your visit will be on this page. You will be able to find out about opening times and days, ticket prices, accessibility information, how to get here, what facilities there are and how to book if you are a group.

More information will follow in 2022, please check back for updates.


As a volunteer you will be part of a friendly team of people who share a passion for this wonderful site and its stories.
