  • Definitely worth a visit if you're in the area. Good exhibitions and demonstrations. Cafe and shop worth a look. It's free to enter and a nice walk from the metro along the river by the university and St Peters church. Free parking if you go by car.
  • In brief, a very pleasant way to while away a couple of hours. Glass blowing demo excellent and very interesting, lots of amazing pieces of glass and plenty history. If you do visit you Must have the Sunday lunch....fab!
  • Fabulous FREE place to visit with free car parking. Friendly staff give context and living memory to the site and building. Wonderful displays of glass working (lathe and blowing) with beautiful pieces available to buy. Food is available on site and is of superb quality.
  • Great place to visit, very interesting. Sadly restaurant is not as good as it should be. Waiting staff are lovely but the food is disappointing. Such a shame for such a great venue.
  • We arrived and we had free parking which was to be frank the only good thing. We arrived and it was very much toddler associated with nothing for children 7+. The food was terribly average and far to expensive. No actual glass blowing occured on the day we visited at all.
