My girlfriend and I found this attraction very interesting and it was pretty cool to see how the glass products on sale get made.

At £2 per head it was a reasonable, ideal if the weather is a little inclement. The guys who were making the products were clearly expert & passionate about their art. Surprisingly there is not as much blowing involved as the job description might suggest....More

Definitely worth a visit. Saw two of the gentleman blowing glass and creating beautifully unique vases and glass ornaments whilst talking us through it. Amazing to watch -albeit very hot! Interesting day out 😊

Love the place but all pretty expensive. Would be better if they charged a certain price & done a wristband.

It was nice to see how the glass is made and only £2 each entry to see the glass blowers. When you see the work that goes into making some of the item they are not badly priced. The gift shop has all glass items...More

It was not much educational as I thought it would be to see the blowing of glass. The transformation of glass to vases were nice to see.

I do recall a few steps leading down from the main shop floor to the sand displays and then more steps leading down to where the glass is made. I didn't see a ramp or lift.
