Lots of cool marbles & shapes of all sizes. Glass work really classy. Amazing colours - but costs a bit. We got some cool spinning glass tops for the kids. Glass maker doing his work - good for a chat. Enjoyable visit.

The World of Marbles id definitely worth a visit when visiting Sheffield. The glass work is exquisite and the puzzles and games worth a look as well. Certainly something for both young and old. Very hard to resist buying something...and not only marbles for purchase.

What a ‘marbellous’ place to visit. Owner was so pleasant and informative - can see him at work! So many different marbles and quirky games. Also a section with crazy structures. Spent ages there and then spent money! Unique, hand-made jewellery. Even got free marbles...More

The quality of presentation of the frontage, the window display, the works for sale and welcome of the artist was of a high standard for a little country town. However Sheffield is not the ordinary country town. We spent a most enjoyable 6 hours there....More

The small museum part is well worth a visit for its ingenious machines. Besides the regular marbles, there are incredible glass artworks in the display cases. The artist manages to create very detailed and colorful pieces within a golf size ball. I purchased 2 of...More
