“Unique, fascinating and utterly absorbing. Brilliantly presented too. A visit to Paradise Mill is not to be missed.”
“A brilliant place to visit. The guide brought it to life. Excellent tour and wonderful old mill with original looms. We discovered a real treasure.”
Our expert Guides will give you a personal tour of Europe’s largest known collection of Jacquard silk handlooms in their original setting. See all stages of the Jacquard silk weaving process from cocoon to the finished fabric, including a demonstration on one of our restored looms. This is a technology that laid the foundations for our digital age.
Coronavirus (Covid-19) Update
Silk Heritage Trust: Building Closure
Caring for the health and wellbeing of our visitors and staff is our priority. Following advice from Public Health England on the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, The Silk Heritage Trust has decided from Wednesday 18 March 2020 that all our venues – The Old Sunday School – including Cinemac, The Silk Museum, Paradise Mill and West Park will remain closed to the public until further notice and all events have been cancelled.
We believe that we must do all that we can to ensure a safe and healthy environment for our community and audiences.
As this is a rapidly changing situation, up to date information will be published on our website and across social media.
We look forward to welcoming you back as soon as the situation allows.
John Varney, Chair and Catherine Dewar, Vice Chair, Silk Heritage Trust
