My parents live not far so we always pop down for a visit, usually for lunch which is really lovely in the cafe. Don't go expecting to have a whole day here, but it's nice to have a look around and even better if there's demonstrations on! The cafe really is lovely!

Quick visit and it was interesting for a quick stop the video was worth watching, but we did not stop for the demonstration as we had seen before. Not a lot in the shop but it was free.

What a wonderful place and pleasure to move around, too. The RHCG is full of history and you can really feel the love those that work here have for the site. Great coffee shop and array of craft shops and working artists that give the cone a very homely and creative vibe. My only concern is over the location of... More

The glass cone is virtually on my doorstep and on Sunday we decided to amble over there where they had a 1940's weekend and how glad we were. Admission was free and access was unlimited. I thoroughly enjoyed the various craft outlets, got some really good ideas for Christmas presents. There was live entertainment, comprising songs from the era where... More

Came here with my adult family on a wet and windy Saturday afternoon and was really impressed with everything there. The museum itself is free. We took an audio tour of the exhibits and glass cone which were top notch. There is a wealth of information regarding both the history of glass making and the importance of the site itself... More

The cone is awesome, as it comes into view,but when inside things take a turn for the amassing. The whole area is laid out well a few specialist crafters, working away, with their wears for sale, and a word of advice to men with wives that like bright shiny jewelry... STAY CLEAR OF HERE. I have found it impossible to... More
