Find Accommodation near 'Silk Industrial Museum / Paradise Mill'


The Park Lanes Galleries at the Industrial Museum house a large collection of silk designs and pattern books of fabrics.

The Galleries are on two floors with access to the upper floor via a lift.

From here visitors who have booked a tour in the adjacent Paradise Mill are escorted by the tour guide to the Mill. Access to the upper floor of the mill is via a lift which is operated by the tour guide.

Despite the age of the building and the large amount of machinery to negotiate access on the majority of the tour is good and the tour guide is extremely knowledgable and informative.

Please note the tour lasts approximately 45 mins and there are no designated toilet facilities in the Mill.
