Very interesting place to visit, my wife loves all things glass and the history of the process and the Victorian furnace was fascinating. Prices in the shop was very reasonable and cafe was a pleasant place to relax but not very exciting food.

Wonderful place for an interesting tour but there is more to it. Great place to find those unusual gifts, enjoy the art and creative crafts and to enjoy a lunch or a coffee.
