About This Attraction
Explore a gem of Britain’s industrial heritage in beautiful, rural Hampshire. Whitchurch Silk Mill is a Georgian water mill that still weaves silk fabrics using Victorian machinery. It is the oldest silk mill still weaving silk in its original building. Discover how the Mill wove for Thomas Burberry, Thomas Wardle and Warners, and made fabrics for shirting and Ede and Ravenscroft’s legal gowns.
Whether you’re machine-mad, an admirer of silk fabrics, a child learning about the Victorians, or just looking for a delightful day out in Hampshire, Whitchurch Silk Mill has something for you including the original mill wheel and Victorian machinery, fabulous fabrics on the looms, a shop to indulge in silk products from the Mill, plus peaceful setting by the River Test, with café for light lunches and refreshments.
If you are visiting as part of a group, Whitchurch Silk Mill offers a guided tour along with a range of refreshments available to book in advance.
You can now visit all year with your entrance tickets. Please note that the yearly entrance tickets do not apply for some events.
