There have been mills here since Saxon times, so it’s fitting that the world’s biggest tidal mill is sited at Three Mills Island. The House Mill is Grade I listed and you can join a guided tour on Sundays, or at other times by appointment. You’ll also find the Grade II listed Clock Mill, which is now part of 3 Mills Film Studio, and the reconstructed Miller’s House.
If you’re looking for a stroll or bike ride in open spaces, head for Riverside Green and Three Mills Green. To the south you can reach Limehouse Cut, or head north towards Leyton, Tottenham and Hertfordshire. There are toilets and a welcoming café at The House Mill.
And there’s more to come with Three Mills Green…
The Green is the first completed part of an exciting project to create the Lea River Park. The series of proposed park spaces will connect the Olympic Park with the River Thames, and provide a fun and ecologically rich environment for all to enjoy.
Wild Kingdom is a unique, innovative play space, designed to give children a taste of natural play in the heart of east London. With carefully placed fallen trees, nets, ropes and giant tree stumps, youngsters can let their imaginations roam free.
The whole family can have fun at Wild Kingdom which is located at Three Mills Green, a key part of the 26 mile long Lee Valley Regional Park. This inspiring play area, which is just a stones throw from Olympic Park is the first legacy project to be delivered for the capital’s communities from the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games.
