Establishment
“Variety of tours, self discovery with audio is good value for around £15 per person, this includes a guided tour through the distillery and a free gin based cocktail in the bar at the end or a non alcoholic one for the driver and a take away gin and tonic! Beautiful old mill that was originally used to print bank notes. Now it’s where all Bombay sapphire gin is produced. The picture of the greenhouse won some awards for the design.”

“The home of Bombay Sapphire Gin which, amazingly, is where the world's supply of the famous blue bottled spirit is made! A really top-notch visitor experience centre [with a super-cute vintage bus cafe for lining the stomach] - and if your budget allows, go for the Cocktail Masterclass - really fun and worth the extra. Its about 25 minutes drive from us or you can take a train from Winchester to Micheldever and get the Bombay shuttle during peak teams [check their website for more info].”

“One of the last remaining working Silk Mills in the UK. Renovation work is due to be completed by September 22nd 2018. Will also offer a brand new cafe. Set within stunning surroundings, overlooking the River Test. https://whitchurchsilkmill.org.uk/mill/index.php/visit-us Whitchurch is an old Mill town, and there are various ways of walking the Mill Trail, depending on the distance you'd prefer. Through pleasant countryside and townscapes. If you like the outdoors with some added historical interest, this is well worth doing! http://www.hants.gov.uk/rh/walking/mill-trail.pdf”

“The marked location on this map is not accurate. Acre Stores is at the Longparish Post Office and Newsagents as shown on the map. A very useful shop that caters for all you basic needs.”
