  • This is such an amazing place to go. They have various exhibitions with incredible work on show and you can sit and watch glass being made. You are able to book in and learn how to make glass yourself, something I am yet to do. The whole centre is brilliantly laid out and accessibility is superb. If you're around the area, I highly recommend the National Glass Centre to be included on your things to see list. While you're there, call into the shop and pick yourself a glass trinket up to take with you, they're fantastic!
  • Excellent practical educational fun. Took the grandkids last week and they made some sand-cast ornaments (with expert help). Collected them this week and stayed to watch a fascinating demonstration of how to make the bottle for the ship to go into. They have s marvellous, if small, museum display and a well stocked shop (prices, in the maim, reasonable).
