Hands on

This wasn't very big, but there was ao much to do. All exhibitions were hands on and child friendly. Hardest part was getting the children to leave. Amazing value too.

A free to all NT production. It's very informative about how and why it was set up along with interactive things like the wind machine. It's all nicely set out and you come out feeling educated and informed. Very good indeed.

crammed a lot into a small space, the National Trust shop, a brilliant information centre about the Bay and a fantastic mosaic that runs up the stairs, which is by local artist, Jo Whitney. This place is a must for your visit as the friendly and helpful staff know their stuff about the area!
