Bringing a group of 10 or more people to Nether Alderley Mill? Find out more about our special offers for group visits, and everything else you need to know about booking and arriving on the day.

Your group tour of the mill

Enjoy a group guided tour inside to observe the centuries-old graffiti and discover more about the life of the miller. Watch the waterwheels turn, powering the huge millstones that grind the flour.

We’re very happy to accommodate specialist interests and arrange bespoke elements for your visit – please speak to a member of our team for further information.

You will be met by a tour guide who will take you through the history and workings of the mill and along to the miller who will demonstrate the workings of turning grain into flour. (This is weather permitting – dry summers may mean limited milling of grain.)

Group prices

We offer a discounted admission rate of £5.70 per person for groups of 10 or more. If your group numbers drop below 10, standard admission fees will apply. National Trust members are admitted free of charge.

For group reductions to apply, all admission fees must be paid on or by the day of your visit, either by cash, cheque or credit/debit card.

Free familiarisation visits for group leaders

If you're planning a group visit you can request our free Travel Trade Pass and you and a friend or colleague will gain free entry to over 300 of our places throughout England, Wales and Northern Ireland for 12 months. There’s nothing quite like seeing or experiencing somewhere for yourself to help you plan a successful visit. To receive your pass, call 0344 800 2329 or email us at NTTravelTrade@capita.co.uk.

Who is eligible for free entry?

Registered tourist board guides (on production of a valid badge), coach drivers and tour leaders escorting groups of 15 or more. National Trust members also receive free entry, so it is at your discretion whether to refund the entrance fee to members if you have included it in your package – this is not refunded by the National Trust.

Members must bring their current membership cards with them to avoid paying the full group rate. If any of your group would like to join the National Trust please direct them to our Membership page or call 0344 800 1895.
