A very small workshop but really worth the £20 to blow your own blue glass hanging ball. People there were friendly and helpful with glass blower being very informative. The shop is fairly expensive but lovely to see all things hand made in England.

Very interesting and informative talk on the history of glass manufacture with demonstrations and a chance to ask questions. Very friendly staff and a chance to look around the attractive showroom and buy items with 10% discount if desired. A worthwhile and enjoyable visit.

The staff were most helpful and their product knowledge guided me to exactly what I needed. The quality of each item is stunning and it's... More

He had already been in touch with them to find out if it would be ok and they couldn't have been more helpful, nothing was too much trouble. Excellent customer service! I selected 2 different items to replace my present and also bought a... More

We were fortunate enough to visit Bristol Blue Glass on an open day, so we saw the highly skilled glass workers demonstrating their craft. It was fascinating and the finished work is impressive...need to return for some Christmas baubles!
