Book a Windmill Tour


On a tour of Brixton Windmill you will see two sets of millstones – the original wind-powered machinery, and the smaller stones installed by the Ashby family in 1902 that were driven by steam. Now they run on electricity and are used by our volunteer millers to produce Brixton Windmill flour.

The tour takes 30 minutes, and you must book in advance.

All tours are accompanied by a trained guide. For a full tour to the top floor you need to be able to climb narrow stairs. For visitors with disabilities we aim to deliver as much interpretation as possible from the ground floor.

For safety reasons, children less than 1.2 metres tall are not allowed in the windmill. Children younger than 14 must be accompanied by an adult.

There is limited space within the windmill – please do not attend if you have symptoms of Covid 19.

How to book

First select a date, and a series of time slots will appear, showing the number of places available. Time slots in red are sold out. Select a time slot with places still available, choose the number of tickets, then click Book now.

Bookings open 30 days in advance.

If there are no places available for a full tour, we also run ‘turn up and go’ short tours throughout the afternoon on our open weekends.

See the internal workings on the first floor of the original mill, along with the now electric powered millstones and hear the fascinating story of the family who once owned the windmill. Booking is not required for short tours but be aware that entry is not guaranteed and you may have to queue. Children need to be able to climb the stairs unaided. Tours last 20 minutes. Last entry is 20 minutes before closing time.
