A lovely rainy day visit. We went round the shops until the tour started. It was interesting watching glass being blown and made.The museum was a revelation of years of making glass.
If you want to see something amazing go and watch the glass blowers at Dartington Crystal. These guys make it look so simple but we all know it's not.

My son wanted to have a go at glass blowing but this was fully booked - fair enough as it did say... 更多
The crystal displays are fantastic. We bought a vase which we had engraved by the onsite artist, and we were really impressed. Sale items too worth a look. Well worth a trip but I would not bring small children as you'd be frightened they may break something!
