Getting there

By car
We are located just off the A414 between Hatfield and Hertford, near Welwyn Garden City in the hamlet of Mill Green. If you're coming from the A1(M), leave at junction three or four, and follow the brown directional signs from the A1000 or the A414.

We have a car park with disabled spaces. Additional car parking is available on the generally quiet and un-restricted lane outside.

By train
We are 1 mile from Hatfield station and it is easy to complete your journey by walking, taking a taxi or riding the bus.
There is a taxi rank and a bus stop just outside the station.

By bus
Use the Traveline South East website to plan your bus journey. Ask the driver for a ticket to Bush Hall Hotel, which is at a junction known as Chequers, located at the end of Bush Hall Lane. Then walk 5 minutes down Bush Hall Lane. Brown signs point to the museum and mill.

By bicycle or on foot
Many of the smaller roads and paths nearby are pleasant for walkers and cyclists. Why not combine your visit with a walk or ride? We are pleased to offer dog water and have secure bike racks, as well as a delightful garden for picnics.

Welwyn Garden City: By Wisdom and Design at Mill Green Museum & Mill

  • 18 February 2020 — 24 January 2021 *on now

Coronavirus: In light of the latest government advice, we have decided to close all of our galleries, the mill and Welwyn Roman Baths to the public until further notice.
We have also suspended our cream tea service from this Sunday and have cancelled our events until at least May 31st. This includes all toddler sessions, Easter and May holiday activities, workshops and annual events.
We are currently taking flour pre-orders for collection at a later date but, due to high demand, we cannot guarantee collection times. We are limiting each customer to 12kg each, in any combination.

In our new exhibition, Welwyn Garden City: By Wisdom and Design, we will be looking at how Ebenezer Howard's vision was put into practice by the founders of the Second Garden City Company and in particular the lead architect Louis de Soisson.
It is a chance to see objects from Welwyn Hatfield's museum collection as well as some loaned original material from Hertfordshire Archives and Local Studies (HALS) and the Letchworth Garden City Heritage Foundation relating to the foundation and early years of Welwyn Garden City.
Howard's Vision
Howard wanted to create a place which embodied the best elements of town living, without the poor conditions that the industrial revolution had produced, and combine them with the benefits of country living. A marriage of town and country: a Garden City.

The exhibition is open until Sunday 24th January 2021 at the following times:
Tuesday - Thursday: 10am - 5pm
Sundays: 2pm - 5pm
Bank Holidays: Open 2pm - 5pm
Monday, Friday, Saturday: Closed
