Inside eling tide mill experience in the new forest

Book Tickets Online


Eling Tide Mill has stood at the centre of life in Eling for centuries. For 900 years millers have been harnessing the power of the tides in Eling Creek to grind wheat into flour.

Today the Grade II* listed tide mill (c. 1785), surrounding riverside walks and adjacent visitor centre and cafe form The Eling Tide Mill Experience.

Visitors are now able to see the power of the tide turning the water wheel and powering the millstones; explore our history in the new interactive exhibition; stroll along Eling Creek shoreline and relax with a coffee in our brand new Mill café.
