Booked a hen party special with mr darcy, really made to feel special such a laugh! It's not the most glamorous location but something a bit different and mr darcy and his assistant really made it a great experience! Thanks for entertaining us all and all the innuendos!
Group of 10 or so of us and glad we prebooked this! X

Demonstration of glass blowing very interesting. The man doing the commentary was very informative. We saw several objects being made, then went back next day and bought the pig we had watched from blob of glass to final creature.

We had a wonderful experience at the glasshouse on 30 June 2012 and would thoroughly recommend this if you want to do something a bit different for your hen weekend. We had such a laugh but also found it very interesting at the same time.

My friend and I visited Bath Aqua Glass on a short break to Bath and we enjoyed the glass blowing demonstration. We watched the glass blower create a vase, glass pig and a plate, then watched some of the other visitors blow glass bubbles.
There are several displays surrounding the seating area where you watch the demonstration, detailing glass and glass making. A small attraction but worth a visit.
You also get 10% off in the shop if you buy a demonstration ticket (£4.00)
Lots of lovely gifts, everything from vases and paperweights to the famous Bath pigs.
