Family Fun

There is lots going on for children and families at Mill Green Museum and the Roman Baths. This is especially true during school holidays when there are many drop-in workshops for children aged 4+.

Adults are not forgotten with frequent craft demonstrations and special event days at the weekends. We would like to draw your attention to the limited parking at Mill Green and encourage visitors to think about using the bus service as there is a bus stop at the top of the footpath that leads to Mill Green. It's also better for the environment and children love catching a bus for a day out!


Summer School Holidays

Throughout the holidays we have a whole host of activities, all suitable for age 4+. No booking required, just come along and join the fun! The activities shown below are at Mill Green Museum.  There are also activities at Welwyn Roman Baths.
