Members of the group are required to stay in their household group or bubble for the duration of the visit, and will not be permitted to mingle with others. To ensure social distancing, the group will have to take refreshments and hall visits at staggered times. The tour format complies with government guidelines on social distancing. Your visit will be engaging, informative, relaxing and of course, safe.
If you would prefer an outdoor visit, why not visit Sarehole Mill? Whilst we can’t take you in to the mill, groups will still hear about its history , its owners, how it has changed over the years and how we use it today. We’ll also take you to the neighbouring Moseley Bog, not only was this area the inspiration for the famous stories of J.R.R. Tolkien, it’s a fabulous haven for nature and wildlife. With wooden boardwalks over the natural habitat, it is one of the city’s hidden gems.
We can accommodate groups of 12 people for a fascinating experience that will last around two hours. After an informative and engaging guided walking tour, you will have a cream tea or freshly made pizza at the Mill, either in the courtyard or in one of our covered spaces.
Group rate: £12.50 – £15.50 per person (dependent on catering choice)
All visits are available from Wednesday to Friday.
The Mill itself is currently closed to the public.
