The Friends have been running tours and open days since their formation to make these important historic buildings accessible so that organisations, groups and individuals can explore, learn, participate in and enjoy the unique and varied heritage.

The Shrewsbury Flaxmill Maltings Visitor Centre is open weekly, and this includes limited access to the site itself where possible - keeping in mind that this is a building site (see home page for opening times). 

We hope to soon be able to book prearranged group and community guided tours around the outside of the buildings - Contact us if you would like to arrange a tour.

Our annual open weekend falls on the national Heritage Open Days in mid September, and this has included tours within the buildings - however, in the current situation that will not be possible.

Register for our mailing list (to the right of this page) to keep informed about tours and open events.


We also have a team of talk volunteers who can visit your group or host a virtual talk. If you are interested in hosting a talk on Shrewsbury Flaxmill Maltings or a specific part of its history please contact us.
