Wimbledon Windmill Museum

The history of windmills told through working models of mills, from ancient Persian and Greek designs to present-day wind farms. The Wimbledon Windmill Museum features working millstones which children can use to grind wheat, and visitors can climb into the tower of the windmill – a Grade II-listed, 1817 example of a hollow post mill – in which the museum is housed to look at the operating machinery.

The museum is open at weekends and on bank holidays from April-October.

An interesting insight into the history of a focal point of the Common


If you’re in the area, why not make a little stop there? In great condition, this little windmill makes you feel like you just ended up in the middle of Holland.

There’s a café on the side for a little grub. And a tiny museum inside, actually quite informative.
