We are lucky enough to live locally to the cone and have had the children's birthday parties here in the past, as well as visiting Santa here at Christmas. It's a great place, full of local history and lots of fun for the kids. The staff are always more than helpful and the kids love it. This place is also... More

A very interesting place explaining the history of crystal glass making. A walk in both directions on the canal is very worth while here. The cone is very photogenic from different positions along the canal with remnants of the past in what is now a modern urban environment. There is no entrance fee here. The on site craft outlets did... More

Didn't spend long here as I walked in towards the end of the day but caught the end of a presentation by one of the glassmakers. The cone itself, a chimney to a dozen ovens, houses exhibitions and demonstrations by artisans. Very interesting. I would recommend for older children Key Stage 2 +) and families/ photogrpahers, etc. Probably good for... More

This place is really not suited to a children’s Easter trail, and I don’t really understand why they do it as I don’t think it was a positive experience for anyone – us doing it, the staff, or the other customers – especially those in the coffee shop. We arrived to do the ‘family’ trail, advertised in a number of... More

Thank you for your review. We were upset that your experience was not an enjoyable one. Our Duck trails are very popular with many regular visitors coming back each school holiday. All studios and the Coffee shop (which are independent) enjoy visitors popping into their studios looking for the ducks. We will remind all staff that full instructions are given... More

The highlight of our visit was the coffee house although the staff were very busy the service I recieved was impeccable. The food we ordered was fantastic value for money and such good sized portions. This will defiantly make me become a regular visitor for a coffee and something to eat. Fantastic couldn't fault it 😀

This is an absolutely excellent museum, showing how glass was made in the 19th and 20th Century. Lots of interesting displays and a good shop as well. Very friendly and helpful staff.
