Group Visits

While the Mill itself is currently closed, we are pleased to be able to offer adult groups a walking tour around the grounds of Sarehole Mill and the surrounding area.

Walking tour at Sarehole Mill with cream tea or pizza

Enjoy an informative and engaging walking tour of the areas surrounding Sarehole Mill, one of only two surviving working watermills in Birmingham.

There has been a mill on this site since 1542, but the current building dates from the mid-18th Century. In the 1850s a steam engine was installed and a chimney built, which provides Sarehole Mill with its distinctive silhouette.

At Sarehole Mill, we will explore the grounds and the mill pond, a favourite spot for wildlife in this peaceful location. Whilst we can’t take you in to the mill, you will still hear about its history , its owners, how it has changed over the years and how we use it today. We’ll also take you to the neighbouring Moseley Bog, not only was this area the inspiration for the famous stories of J.R.R. Tolkien, it’s a fabulous haven for nature and wildlife. With wooden boardwalks over the natural habitat, it is one of the city’s hidden gems.

We can accommodate groups of 12 – 15 people for a fascinating experience that will last around two hours. After an informative and exciting guided walking tour, you will have a cream tea or freshly made pizza at the Mill, either in the courtyard or in one of our covered spaces.

Your experience will include:

  • An introduction to the mill
  • A tour of Moseley Bog
  • Cream tea or pizza
  • Free time in the gardens

This tour is available from Wednesday to Friday.

Walking tour with cream tea is just £12.50 person.
Walking tour with pizza, freshly baked on site, for just £15.50 per person.

Please note guests must be fit to walk to Moseley Bog. Suitable footwear and outdoor clothing are recommended.
