A short film about an English cycling institution: the Eureka Cafe in the Cheshire that has welcomed cyclists since 1929

The famous Eureka Cafe at Two Mills in Cheshire UK (known locally as ‘The Mills’) is a rare survivor of the tearooms and cafes that came into being in the late 19th and early 20th centuries to cater for cyclists.

Its position at a crossroads in the South East corner of the Wirral peninsula, made it ideally placed for Merseyside cyclists wanting to explore Cheshire, North Wales and beyond.

The Eureka first opened its doors in 1929. It has been an important place to local cyclists ever since and continues to play a vital role today.
