The Visitor Centre is very interesting, the video on the 2004 floods was fascinating, we had some food in the cafe attached, the soup was excellent. A must see if you are visiting Boscastle.

Enjoyable wander around the visitor centre. The staff were very helpful in advising what would be good material for a school project on the flooding.

Thoroughly enjoyed seeing the small aspects of Boscastle's history. From fishing, to witchcraft, to magic and history, it was a breath of fresh air from Kentish history. Lovely to look around and sit and smile.
