I haven't been to the windmill since I was about seven, I can remember going with school but haven't been back since.
At the windmill, there is a science centre with lots to explore, including how magnets and electricity work, as well as an area for under 5s. They also have tea and coffee and biscuits available.
You start the tour after climbing to the top floor of the windmill. From there you get beautiful views over the rooftops and sights of Nottingham, including the castle and the council house.
You get to see the cogs, mill stones and the hoppers where the grain goes. It is a fabulous insight into the workings of a windmill, with videos on each floor to tell you what happens it is perfect for younger and older children.
It was great to see how everything worked and we even got to bring some flour home. Their flour is organic, tastes great, and is local too.
Sat on the top of the hill overlooking Nottingham this is a beautiful landmark that represents 100s of years of Nottingham's history. It was wonderful to look round and see this with the children and show them what visited when I was younger.
