    We basically visited to see the building and the museum - both of which were interesting. Overall we were disappointed as the shopping experience spoilt the overall effect and was relatively poor.  more »

    It's not that clear from outside exactly what is held inside this building. The car park is just next to the mill and worth using although other parking is available in Cromford. Entering from the pav...  more »

  • This is a great place to visit if in the area. Factory Outlet goods on 4 floors, Museum and excellent small cafe/restaurant. Parking is easy - £1.50 for 2 hours (you get given a .75p voucher for use in store and/or cafe). Worth a good look.
  • This place was very interesting especially the tour of the mill with the live demonstration. Cafe was very clean with a nice cuppa!! Nice things to buy in the shops too.
  • Fantastic place to browse around with a great selection of products. Brilliant indoor kids play area for only £1 per child, with a separate baby area. Interesting building (old textiles mill) with a small museum inside. Cafe serving nice homemade food and a good selection of drinks .
  • Well worth a visit. The museum gives a fascinating insight into the working conditions in a 19th century mill. Access is reasonably easy by car, but I was travelling in a 7-metre motorhome, and it was very tight for access. They claim to accept coaches, but I don't see where they can accommodate them. Goods in the mill shop seemed to be quite expensive.
  • Well worth a visit here if yous ever this way on just don't get confused like I did on the lifts lol
