  • If you are an amatuer woodworker who wants to drool over some superb tables or you are a prospective purchaser with several pockets full of cash, beware, the cameras are watching you!!! There is a small sign on a pillar about 8ft from the door behind some vases or lamps, which states (among other rules) that you are not allowed to crawl on the floor. This is not so you do not dirty your knees but apparently so that you cannot see how well the tables are made. The guardian of the store makes it very clear that the floor is very out of bounds as he is watching your every move on cc tv. If the makers of the furniture are so precious about how they have made an item, maybe a photo hung on the wall would be a better way to display their wares. Definately one place I will never return to or recommend.
  • Superb craftsmanship and large range of studio furniture, collectable artworks and outstanding artwork. A 'must' place to visit!

Where to stay in Launceston

Many visitors to Launceston choose to settle into one of the area's spacious rental apartments, which offer large rooms and plenty of privacy. Equally comfortable, the city's centrally located four-star hotels include onsite restaurants and air-conditioned rooms with flat-screen TVs and satellite channels. A less expensive alternative, Launceston's inns provide a convenient base for backpackers and causal travelers arriving without prior reservations. If you want something atmospheric and historical, look for guesthouses located in well-preserved Georgian and Victorian buildings.
