This is our second visit to here and we weren't disappointed 15yrs on. We watched the demonstration and purchased reasonably priced items as souvenirs. The glass is stunning and staff are friendly.

Hand made unique glass items. A must visit. I purchased a beautiful mirror which one of the staff members packed with utmost care and diligence. So excited to put it up at home. Thank you for a great end to a weekend away in Bath!
