  • Visitor Information

The Grade II listed House Mill is the largest and most powerful of the four remaining tidal mills in Britain. The brick clad, five storey building, with its wooden window frames and clay tiled roof, is located on the historic and picturesque Three Mill Island in Bromley-by-Bow. The 18th century tidal mill was built in 1776 by Daniel Bisson, on the site of an earlier mill and though the wheels stopped turning in 1941 there are plans to restore them for power generation. The House Mill can be explored via guided tours - visitors cannot access the building unescorted - which take place every Sunday from May to October and on the first Sunday of the month in March, April and December. The Miller's House next door provides a visitor, information, and education centre, with meeting rooms for hire and a small cafe.
