 Visitor information



The Mill is closed for restoration. The work is due for completion in late 2019 which will enable full public opening from April 2020.


In the meantime, the new visitor centre is open on selected weekends. Watch for notices on our home page. 


By car


Entrance to the Mill is on the A124 (89 St. Mary's Lane, Upminster, RM14 2QL), 200 yards west of the traffic lights in Upminster town centre.


There is no parking on site. There is a public car park at the New Windmill Hall (RM14 2QH) which is almost opposite.

By bus


The 248 and 370 buses both pass the entrance to the windmill.

By train


Both Upminster (C2C & District line) and Upminster Bridge stations are a short walk from the windmill.

Our new visitor centre is fully accessible internally but car access to the front door is not possible while the restoration is underway. Please email to discuss your visit.


Once open, the mill will be accessible by car to the front door, though access above the ground floor is by means of steep stairways only. More information will be provided on completion of the site work.
