Having stayed in this little seaside town for a very enjoyable week, we visited the centre to learn something of its history. With some great audio-visual presentations, we were not disappointed. The documentary film from the 1940's was very interesting and shows that the place hasn't changed a great deal (though fishing and mining have obviously declined). The old Life Boat (Mary Joicey) has an heroic past and the AV presentation (imagery and poetry in perfect combination) brought a lump to my throat. Well worth the £2.50 entry fee.
We called in for a drink on a separate occasion and sat outside watching the world go slowly by. We found the staff very pleasant.
