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. At the moment we are focusing on offering virtual talks for groups. This can be an overview talk or a suite of shorter talks about particular themes of interest to your group: architecture, social history, restoration. If you are interested in hosting a talk on Shrewsbury Flaxmill Maltings or a specific part of its history please contact us.

The Shrewsbury Flaxmill Maltings Visitor Centre will be open weekly from April 2021, 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 be able to book prearranged group and community guided tours around the outside of the buildings from April 2021 (virus restrictions permitting) - 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 has not been possible, which is why we offered a raft of short videos, which you can watch here
