  • 2nd time visit. Working displays fascinating. Could sit and watch all day. The skill they have is amazing. On site cafe very nice. Parking was okay but can imagine busy in the summer.
  • Good food and coffee. Interesting to watch glass blowing. Gifts are good. Views great.
  • Where do you start...its a day out. Internally provides great knowledge of Sunderland's world known glass heratige. Great shop. Great glass blowing tour. Wonderful restaurant. Great view of harbour, lighthouse and docks. On the sculpture walk to the rest of Sunderland's sea front. Good parking but less than a mile from Sunderland City Centre, so great walk on a fair day.
  • Great place to spend time. Educational facility. Love going back.
