Bembridge Windmill

High Street, Bembridge, PO35 5SQ

01983 873945

Daily 10.30am - 5.00pm

The only surviving windmill on the Isle of Wight

This little gem is a Grade 1 listed building and one of the island’s most iconic images. Built around 1700, it last operated in 1913 but still has most of its original machinery intact.

Climb to the top of the mill then find out how it once worked as you descend its four floors.

Dogs on leads welcome in the grounds but not inside the windmill. Families welcome: find the millers hidden around the windmill on the free millers trail and have a go at milling with our hand quern. Push the button on the model of the windmill to see how it once worked. Additional family nature trails in school holidays.

Don’t miss
■Feel the wooden machinery worn smooth by the years
■See how the windmill operated with our working model
■Watch a short film to discover the milling process
■Enjoy the countryside that inspired J. M. W. Turner

There is a small kiosk selling hot and cold drinks, ice-creams, sweets and biscuits: opening times are the same as the windmill and you can also pick up a souvenir at the same time.
