  • This is a lovely place at summer and the small cafe provides really nice cakes and tea. There is a guided tour of the windmill at certain times although you can go around independently.  more »

  • Fascinating to see a windmill right in the middle of a residential area. Interesting mill, and good guidance from the volunteers.  more »

  • Stumbled across this on one of the few days it's open to visitors. Would highly recommend going if you're looking for something a bit different. The volunteer tour guides (especially Lois) are extremely dedicated and knowledgeable while the rest of the volunteers are cheerful and helpful. Fascinating stuff with more history behind it than you would think!
  • I had no idea this was here. My father, who was visiting from America, wasn't in the mood to go far and was looking for something off the beaten track (but still on an easy bus route) to check out. The solution: The Shirley Windmill It's open on day a month (or something to that effect), but we didn't go on whatever day that happened to be. Instead, we walked up, walked around, took some pictures, marveled in this rural relic of Victoriana, and then went to lunch a bit further up the road.
  • Love this windmill
  • Is a beautiful windmill, perfectly conserved, great to visit, unfortunately is close during winter.
  • One of only four windmills open to the public in greater London, Shirley windmill is owned by Croydon council and opened and run by The Friends of Shirley Windmill. The mill is open to the public on the first Sunday of the month from June to October from 1pm to 5pm as well as National Mills day and Open House day from 12noon until 5pm. Refreshments teas and cakes available at the visitors centre.
