  • Lovely tour and we learned a lot about the history of rum and its relationship with Whitehaven. It was made even better by the brilliant Rob Romano who gave us a fantastic tour and was brilliantly helpful and friendly. Definitely a fun addition to the day.
  • Great for coffee...also lovely new shop out front selling local produce etc...the rum story experience is super for both children and adults. Wonderful school trips too.
  • 40 mins for coffee, another 5 mins for breakfast and ANOTHER 5 mins for a measly slice of toast that wasn't even cooked.
  • All about the smuggling trade of old. Great fun for the family
  • An interesting couple of hours into the slave trade & rum making, well worth a visit.
