Not much to say about the visitor center. Good exchange rates for dollars, nice and friendly staff, surprisingly cheap souvenir shop.

The woman at the Centre was extremely helpful in getting us a tour to Bath and Stongehenge. She was very informative and helped us make the right choices.

We really enjoyed the Oxford univ walking tour with Brigitta, the Austrian tour guide. She is very knowledgeable about the university and gave a good background and history of the place to us. She was also full of energy!

Centrally located and near many attractions in the city. A little small and if full can get very crowded.
