It's disgraceful that such a respected body should have stooped to the level of dodgy fairground traders. The National Trust needs to immediately address this situation. We went there yesterday and were directed to the car park and told to go to the visitors centre and buy tickets. At no stage at all were we advised that we could have... More

Having visited the causeway in previous years I found the newest visitor centre expensive and lacking in content. The stones themselves are the stars and I have now discovered that you don't need to pay to get to the stones themselves - a lesson learned. Maybe a first time visitor would get more from it.

Agree whole heartedly with the revue. This is a magnificent bit of coastline that is free to access, and I am embarrassed as a local person to have witnessed the wholesale swindling going on at the place. To suggest there is any indication given to first time visitors that access to the Causeway is free is a pure lie on... More

This was the worst experience I have encountered whilst visiting a National Trust property. I thought I had entered a London bus terminal . Crowded, poorly sign posted, overwhelmed yet polite staff, the whole place was a very poor introduction to this landmark, especially for my elderly relation who had requested to visit here on her one day in Northern...

It's a very friendly place with a spacious cafe, a souvenir shop and an interactive museum. Good parking system.

Visitor centre very good. We are national trust members so free entry & free bus which would recommend esp back uphill. Did tour but audio kept cutting out and guide walked at a brisk pace not seeming to realise that she could not be heard. Stones good to see and enjoyed legend.

The visitor center is like the holocaust museum, ugly, black and dark. Before the National Trust got its claws into this place, it was lovely, amazing and peaceful. Now its turned into a sickening money-making machine. Why pay 8,50!!! for a walk to some nice shaped rocks, because that is what it is all about. Why this ugly visitor center,... More

The causeway itself is a great place to visit, one of only a few places like this in the world. However, I would give the vistors centre a miss (I am a NT member so didn't cost anything, but not worth the £8.50). The walk from the centre to the stones is interesting and some of the scenery is unique.
