Wimbledon Windmill Museum

London

London Attractions

Here you are guaranteed to find something to interest you- even if you don't want to spend your time taking the full tour around the Museum, you could still visit the shop for postcards, books, souvenirs and even the famous Wombles!

This Wimbledon Windmill has been a feature of the Wimbledon skyline since 1817, when it was built to serve the local community's wheat-grinding needs. Unfortunately the windmill was only in use for 47 years, when it was then converted into residential accommodation.

It has in recent times been restored to working order, and the Wimbledon Windmill Museum houses fascinating museums of windmills, with exhibits on rural life, local history and a display of Scouting memorabilia, commemorating Baden- Powell's 'Scouting for Boys' in the early 1900s. The first floor of the Wimbledon Windmill Museum also contains opportunities for children to try flour milling- using methods and tools from a century and more ago. At least one hour should be allowed to see all the exhibits.

Incorporate a visit to the Wimbledon Windmill Museum into a visit to Wimbledon Common, and one of the many restaurants, cafes and pubs surrounding the Common and Wimbledon Village.
