Holgate Windmill

Where is the windmill?

Our address is:

Windmill Rise,
YO26 4TX.

We are approximately one and a half miles west of York city centre. There is ample parking at the kerbside on Acomb Road. The Carlton Tavern pub (3-4 minutes walk from the windmill towards Acomb) on Acomb Road have also kindly allowed us to use their car park (ideal parking if you are visiting both the Windmill and the Cold War Bunker and also looking for somewhere for food and drink).

Please do not park in Windmill Rise as it is a narrow residential street and we don’t want to cause disruption to our neighbours.

How can I get there?



There are two bus services from the city centre which stop very close to the mill:

The No.1 bus (towards Chapelfields/Acomb) goes past the Theatre Royal and railway station and there is a stop close to the mill on Acomb Road (ask for the New Lane stop). Just walk up the snicket opposite the bus stop and you’re there!

The No.10 bus (towards Poppleton) departs from Picadilly (outside M&S Home) and passes the railway station. Ask for the Fox Pub stop. You will need to walk a little way up Acomb road (2-3 mins) and up the snicket opposite the Methodist Church.

Check the timetables on the First York website here.

We are also only 20-25 minutes walk from the railway station (via Blossom Street & Holgate Road).
