Three Mills

Believed to date back to the eleventh century, the Three Mills area offers visitors a unique glimpse of the past with an eye firmly to the future.

You'll find this unique hidden gem a short walk from the Park - ten minutes down Stratford High Street.  

Three Mills Green

A vital part of the 26 mile long, 10,000 acre Lee Valley Regional Park, Three Mills brings together history, culture and entertainment in its stunning riverside location. At the heart of the area is 3 Mills Studios, the largest film studios in central London, which you can find more out about in the Business section.

Next to the studios is the Grade 1 listed House Mill which is open to guided tours on Sunday and at other times by appointment. Originally built in 1776, it is the largest existing tidal mill in the world and offers a fascinating account of how this area of east London has developed over the past 200 years.

The House Mill is open every Sunday from May to October from 11am - 4pm, except for the first Sundays in March, April and December when the last tour is at 3.30 pm.

Wild Kingdom

Let your child’s imagination run wild in this natural and unique play space.

Carefully placed fallen trees and giant stumps stand alongside rope swings, hammocks and even a trampoline creating a wild playground which children will love exploring. For younger children there are small boulders to clamber over and for budding actors there is a stage built in a natural amphitheatre. 

The Wild Kingdom play area was created following a collaboration between Lee Valley Regional Park Authority, Foundation for Future London and the London Legacy Development Corporation. It is a pioneering open space, demonstrating the Legacy Corporation’s commitment to bringing the great outdoors to east London’s communities.
