  • At the base of one of the first wind turbines in Norfolk, is a centre trying to educate the importance of renewable energy and the ability right now for all of us to help reduce the destruction of our environment. I am by no means an ardent environmentalist, but the importance of what this centre demonstrates reinforces to me that we can all do more. A nice display of alternatively fuelled vehicles, EV recharging points and a tour to the top of the wind turbine makes this a place that can impact a child's outlook on the environment and what they can do to help support their future. Good vehicular access and parking, disabled parking and access and a very pleasant cafe on site. Well worth stopping at and spending some time. I would like to see this project expand and be echoed throughout the UK.
  • Absolutely amazing experience. Staff were exceedingly knowledgable and passionate about what they do. We attended the Turbine tour which runs at 11am, 1pm and 3pm, was well worth the money. We were then given an extensive tour around their garden which was amazing and we are very keen to get back there!
  • Good visitor's centre, nice cafe, great experience climbing the turbine - the tour was fascinating and the views amazing. Not for the faint-hearted as it's a narrow spiral staircase and the tower naturally sways, but I thought it was great fun.
  • A wind turbine you can walk up (300 steps), very knowledgeable guides, a lovely cafĂ© and (small) visitor centre with lots of information about the environment and renewable energy.
  • Very interesting and well presented exhibit but why on earth it is closed on the weekends is beyond me. Why not levy a small entrance fee to cover the cost of weekend opening - that has got to be the most popular time.
