Welcome to Wilton Windmill!

Latest news can be found here

Set high above the village of Wilton with stunning views, about 9 miles south east of Marlborough in Wiltshire, Wilton Windmill is the only working windmill in Wessex and still produces wholemeal, stone-ground flour.

We are open every year from Easter to the end of September on Sundays and Bank Holidays from 2pm to 5pm when the windmill building is open for guided tours. The shepherd’s hut shop, serving refreshments and gifts and providing a seating area, is also open at this time, as are the loos.

You can visit the Windmill at any time – there is a picnic area with breathtaking views across to the Downs and the building can be viewed from the outside.

Dogs are welcome, but please keep them on a lead and pick up any mess before you leave.

Wilton Windmill is in the middle of the North Wessex Downs Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, which is a tranquil and stunning landscape of rolling chalk downland, forests, woods and dales. With so  much space and so few people, you could be forgiven for thinking you are the only ones on the downs!  Click on the logo below to find out other places and activities you can include as part of your visit to this unique part of England.

The Windmill is run entirely by volunteers from the Wilton Windmill Society, so please make a contribution in the donation box by the gate when you visit or make a donation here on the website when you get home.  You can also get involved by volunteering or becoming a member.

We hope you enjoy your visit!

The Windmill’s Education Resources are now available and include information on how to book a school visit.
