Take your children here and let them choose a little souvenir to buy. It has been a yearly tradition in our family for over 20 years... now the grandchildren love to visit!

I love seashells and I love this shop, a must visit every time I'm up here. Would love a bigger set up, but the variety is great. Very friendly staff to answer all your questions.

Don't be put off by the outside! This is a quirky little museum with a huge range of shells from all over the world and my kids loved it. An admission of .50c the gifts and shells are very reasonably priced.

My daughter is a nature lover. We were recommended this lovely shop by a friend. We spent a hour to select and bought a lot of shells for our new home décor. Great place and nice shopkeeper.
