Paradise Mill tours will resume when we re-open both the Silk Museum and Paradise Mill on Thursday 20th May.
Initially, opening on Thursdays and Saturdays only – more days will be added to co-incide with school Summer holidays in July.
As we’re open for fewer days, we’re increasing the number of tours on Thursdays and Saturdays at Paradise Mill: 10.15-11.15am | 11.30-12.30pm | 1-2pm | 2.15-3.15pm.
Don’t forget your mask and socially distance! Hand sanitiser stations are available throughout. Staff will be wearing face-coverings or masks and we expect visitors to wear a face covering too. However, we realise it’s not possible for everyone.
“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.
