Visit Shrewsbury Flaxmill Maltings and discover the building that changed skylines across the world forever.
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.
Advance booking recommended to guarantee entry. Tickets can be purchased in person, on the day, subject to availability.
Please note that the guided tours and The Mill exhibition need to be booked separately. Spaces are more limited on guided tours, so if you wish to have more than one experience on the same day, we suggest you book your guided tours first before you book your exhibition ticket.
