Free entry to a unique industrial heritage site with a truly amazing brick built cone dating from the 18th century. This site is the only surviving full brick cone used for glass production since the 1780's. There are other exhibitions on site, historical/art etc and a good number of craft and artists studio's ranging from glass wares, ceramics, art and... More

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.

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
