The row of original historic buildings is very interesting - well done, not too glammed up. The information is well presented, and to allow visitors free access is a big plus

Croyden information centre is a step better than most. It has a comprehensive display of the mining history of the area and a 10 movie well worth watching. We love Croyden, there is so much to see there.
