Although Wilton Windmill is the top of a hill, it can be quite difficult to find once you are closer to the site. When you come along the lane (Wilton Hill), once you get to a layby, you have reached the entrance to the Windmill.
The Windmill itself is set off the lane and is hidden from view at the entrance by trees and hedges. A short walk down the pathway, turn right and there it is in all its glory!
The Windmill is open from Easter to the end of September on Sundays and Bank Holiday Mondays from 2pm to 5pm, when the windmill building is open for guided tours. The shepherd’s hut shop and loos are also open at these times.
Outside these hours, you are welcome to visit the site and view the Windmill from the outside – please note the shop and loos will not be open.
We have a lovely picnic area which you can use at any time during the day, apart from on special event days or Open Days (Check the calendar).
We hope that you enjoy your visit to the Windmill which is run entirely by volunteers and that you are able to make a contribution to the donations box situated by the entrance gates. You can also donate on this website or join the Wilton Windmill Society to help keep this Wiltshire treasure open to everyone.
Please note that access to all the floors of the windmill is via steep steps and so is not suitable for everyone. The ground floor display area is accessible and does not involve steps.
