As Australian National Trust Members the parking, audio guides, guided tour and access to the Visitors Centre - cafe, gift shop, good WCs, some displays etc were free... ...saves £9 a time... EACH. If you are an Australian... or NZender or other Commonwealth countries too I think... join your own National Trust and just visits to the few British NT... More

Bypass the visitor centre and use the FREE entrance to walk down to the Causeway. The visitor center is the tourist trap to pay dearly in Sterling. You get headphones, but for the beauty and picturesque area they are unnecessary. walking down is no problem, but you might spring for a pound to take bus back up if tired or... More

Luckily I didn't pay to enter this as there's not a great deal. The cafe was nice and the staff super friendly. But in its own right it's not worth going in to.

My family visited on Wednesday 17th August. We had previously been advised of the "rip off" prices to access the visitor centre, therefore on arrival we asked a helpful member of staff about the parking facilities. He was most helpful by re directing us to the railway station car park where we were able to park the car for six... More

The Giant's Causeway has been on my bucket list for years and I wasn't disappointed. The visitor centre is huge. Use the Park and Ride from Bushmills and you get in much cheaper (P&R is free too). National Trust members free. The visitor centre is informative and the guided tours worthwhile. There are buses that shuttle people to and from... More

if you want to learn all about the causeway and its creation plan to spend an hour or more here. There is a ton of films and demo for you to see. Plus do it on your way back to find the washrooms.

Visited on a Sunday in the summer holidays. Probably a mistake. Amazing geography but spoilt by the huge numbers of tourist you have to share it with. Be careful to research where to park. We made the mistake of letting ourselves be directed into the national trust parking and had to pay £18 for the pressure.

As a National Trust member this is free. But it is very misleading as visitors think that they must pass through here to get to the stones. YOU DO NOT NEED TO GO THIS WAY. National Trust could be a bit more upfront about this I feel. It looks impressive, but the content is just OK.

Had lots of bother trying to reserve tickets before we got there to avail of cheaper prices meaning had to pay full price onsite. I called them and spoke to a girl called Crystal who wasn't very helpful with a solution as 'no one else seems to be having problems'. Not the best response but we still went as we... More
