Group visits

Shrewsbury Flaxmill Maltings offer a 15% discount to groups of 11 people or more.  Booking is essential in advance as we will need to plan your visit and ensure we have enough volunteer guides on site.  Both the Mill Exhibition and Behind-the-Scenes Tours are distinct offers and need to be booked separately. Group visits need to be booked two months in advance and require a 50 percent deposit to confirm the booking.

Please note that unfortunately we are unable to offer the Jubilee Tower Tour as a part of a group visit as we are only able to take 6 people to the top of the Jubilee Tower at a time.

Group visits are available daytime on Wednesday-Sunday.

Behind-The-Scenes Tours

Go behind-the-scenes at this iconic landmark of the Industrial Revolution and dig deeper into the past, present and future of building that changed skylines across the world forever.  You will be shown around the wider site by one of our trained volunteer guide and taken into some areas the ordinary visitor does not usually get to see!  Hear the stories of the site, its history and its people from a knowledgeable guide.  Have the chance to stand in the amazing atrium space of the The Kiln.  Follow in the workers footsteps as you walk down the original stairs.  Visit the Cross Mill and enter an unrestored floor of the building.

Tours are limited to 12 people maximum at a time, so group tours need to be booked at least two months in advance so we can guarantee our volunteer guides are ready for your visit.

Mill Exhibition

The Mill exhibition on the ground floor of the Main Mill is self-guided and brings to life the story of this iconic landmark of the industrial revolution.

With digital and hands-on activities for all ages, walk one of the floors where spinning machines whirred, flax flew and barley was processed for beer to brew. Discover the lives and stories of workers, engineers, soldiers and entrepreneurs who played their part in one of the greatest heritage transformations and regenerations of all time.

From its pioneering beginnings paving the way for skylines across the world, to the campaign to save and repurpose it for future generations to enjoy, you too can now experience the incredible journey of the grandparent of skyscrapers.

It’s not so run-of-the-mill.
