The safety of our visitors and colleagues is our number one priority. To help keep everyone safe, we’ve implemented a number of measures and changes to the Mill experience. We will continue to ensure that the Mill, Café, Shop, and the team are COVID-safe and adhere to all safety requirements and that we delight every visitor as we always aim to do. 

Our visitors tell us that they feel the Mill Team is doing the right thing and that our team are behaving in the right way to ensure that they have a safe and enjoyable visit. As a result, we will continue to provide a range of measures to ensure that you can visit in safety and comfort.

  • Disposable face masks will be available if you forget yours.

  • We will maintain reduced capacity for groups visiting the Mill.
  • There will be hand-sanitiser stations throughout the site.
  • We will continue to clean touchpoints regularly.
