Inspiration. Art. Nature.

Discover the Alton Mill

Some 25 studio artists, art galleries, a heritage museum, cafe and unique shops call this national-award-winning heritage building "home".

Perched on the bank of Shaw’s Creek, the Mill's industrial-chic ambiance is the perfect setting to host parties or corporate events and a particularly special venue for your wedding.
