This is becoming a far better destination than it used to be - huge improvements to access and the site itself is a step in the right direction- the wardens are knowledgeable and very amiable

Lovely historical complex for adults and children. Lots to see and often special things to do. Lovely little tea shop on site. Friendly knowledgeable staff. Craft shops to buy from. Additionally see the canal and the ever hungry ducks from the site.

Free entry,but small charge for children's activities.the activities where on the theme of the mad hatter's tea party, so children made hats/masks,puppets, window pictures, plus there was free colouring also available. A duck hunt, and children got a bag of sweets for finding them all. We watched a woman blow glass and made it into a plate, that was really... More

Interesting rejuvenated historical site including several small craft exhibitions, a gift shop, café and canal side seating area. Disappointed there were no live demonstrations on the day of my visit. Apparently you need to go on a week-end or school holiday for these. However it was still an informative and well worth while experience.

Free in and lots to see though don't expect a day here. I love marvelling at the brick work inside the actual cone, a credit to the builders of the Black Country. Café on site or you can sit by the CANAL (not a river as a previous reviewer stated!!!!!) to have a packed lunch. Also glass and artisan shops... More

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.
