An amazing experience - glass blowing. Thank you for your patience and good humour. Great fun if a little scary at times! Has to be tried to fully appreciate the wonderful things in the shop!

We didn't get time to go the site where they actually blow the glass, but only had time to go to the shop. Lots of lovely items to see and buy, all at a reasonable price. On our next visit to Bath we plan on seeing the glass being blown

It was great watching the glass blowers, the things they were making were beautifull. It,s nice to see glass still being made by hand instead of machine made. well worth a visit.
