Originally built in the early 1800s, the Flour Mill and has been used for a whole range of activities over the years. Including a greengrocer, tea merchant, bootmaker and even a nightclub! Until the building sadly fell into disrepair…
Since then the Flour Mill has undergone major transformations and is now home to a truly inspiring workspace. Fully equipped with fast fibre lines, WiFi and technology.

Evidence suggests that the Flour Mill Dundee dates from 1820. Where it was formerly known as Castle Flour Mills. The “Castle” part inspired by the old medieval Castle of Dundee on which the mill now stands- destroyed by Robert the Bruce back in 1313.
