  • Modern building and a great place to see glassware and how it's made. Glass blowing demo was really interesting. Cafe has good food. Kids loved walking on the glass roof.
  • Come learn about glass, it's fun and it's free! All you could ever want to know about glass and more. Free shows, free exhibitions, and a nice cafe downstairs.
  • Free entry. Watch demos of glassblowing, view showcases full of local glass making items, see artists creating intricate glass objects or dine in the large restaurant before stepping outside which overlooks the river and view items on the sculpture trail.
  • Been here both the centre itself and a conference/awards evening. Lovely venue.
  • Brilliant place to visit, glass blowing demonstrations, statues being made, great gift shop and cafe, take a visit, it's a must.
