Jordans Mill is a unique food heritage attraction in rural Bedfordshire offering tours of the historic flour mill, beautiful gardens and the Riverside Café, Groups are warmly welcomed either as part of a one destination or multi destination trip.
Step back in time
A key part of the visitor experience is a guided tour of the iconic Victorian Mill, steeped in history and situated in a glorious location on the banks of the River Ivel. The tour, which lasts approximately one hour, takes visitors on a fascinating journey from the beginnings of milling in Bedfordshire to Jordans Cereals’ place as one of the UK’s leading cereal manufacturers.
During the tour, our tour guides bring the Mill to life through a demonstration of the ingenious milling machinery and tales of the Jordan family and the generations that worked in the Mill.
Explore the stunning gardens
After the tour, visitors are free to explore the stunning Mill Gardens. Take a stroll through the unique food and flower gardens where crops, vegetables and fruits are grown in an ornamental setting alongside wild flowers and cultivated garden plants.
From the Mill Gardens, stroll across the bridge into the Mill Meadow, which teems with wildflowers in the summer and is grazed by the resident sheep in the winter, and next to the meadow is the woodland area which is specially designed to attract wildlife.
Delicious, freshly made food in a riverside setting
The large Riverside Café has space for over 100 diners inside with a popular outside terrace, a favourite spot for visitors in the warmer months thanks to its stunning outlook across the river and to the Mill. The Riverside Café serves a varied menu which changes seasonally, using local ingredients where possible with everything freshly prepared. For larger parties, the two private rooms on the first floor offer an alternative location for lunch or refreshments with varied and flexible catering options to suit your requirements. Both rooms have beautiful views and a balcony overlooking the River Ivel.
