Bit of glass blowing and overpriced glassware. Looked at one should have been about £40 priced at £400 Really? Got to be joking! Nothing reasonably priced.

Our ethos since we opened 23 years ago was to make viewing the art of glass making accessible to as many people as possible, completely FREE and without hindrance, unlike many establishments worldwide, where you're either charged an entrance fee, or hounded into buying something via hardselling techniques.

This has allowed the vast majority of people to appreciate the hard work and skill that goes into producing our pieces, irrespective of what they may be priced at. Obviously, some of the more complex pieces have to be priced accordingly, reflecting the complexity and craftsmanship that has been invested in creating them. This in turn allows us to pay our craftsmen their well deserved remuneration and be able to continue as a viable business. Connosseurs and collectors of handmade glassware worldwide appreciate the fact that our goods are competitively priced, hence why we've been in business for so long.

The overwhelming majority of the reviews here are testament to our continued success.

Nonetheless I hope you enjoyed your visit to what is after all Gibraltar's premier FREE tourist attraction !

Horribly overpriced goods - £220 for 4 wine glasses for example. Hand blown and artisanal the glass might be, but this place is exorbitant for what is on offer.
