Local Attractions

If you’re looking for somewhere to walk off your lunch, you’ll find some great routes along the canal. Or, you can sample some local history with a visit to Frogmore Paper Mill. It is the world’s oldest mechanised paper mill – the birthplace of paper’s industrial revolution. Today it is still a working paper mill, producing around 100 tonnes of specialist grade paper every year on historic paper machines. You can take a guided tour at various times through the day, with the last tour at 3pm.{hotelid}?check_in_date={check_in_date}&check_out_date={check_out_date}
