Attempting to charge for something thats free... Visitor centre guarded at both entry and exit doors like Buckingham Palace. No ticket, no entry. Their loss.... No gift shop or cafe access = no money spent/business taken elsewhere. Extortion.

At £11 per adult this is an absolute rip off unless you are a National Trust member. You don't have to pay to see the acgual stones! The ticket is only for the visitor's centre! For £11 you can go to the coffee shop and...More

We are local members of the National Trust and the facilities in this overwhelmed attraction make us deeply ashamed. We visited yesterday and both the toilets and the cafe were in an absolutely disgraceful state. It is very expensive to go in if you are...More

Very little point going in visitors centre as causeway and toilets can be accessed without going in. If you aren't national trust members it's pointless paying for poor gift shop.

Would 100% recommend anyone the experience to come here! My sister and I are National Trust members, so we got to go into the visitor centre which has many cool exhibitions and a souvenir shop. If you buy a ticket, then you can come in...More

About as exciting as the causeway itself and that's not giving much praise. How the NT (National Trust) justified the investment is beyond belief.

For such a world class attraction it is rather a shame the visitor centre does not live up to Giant's causeway. There is the usual NT memorabilia plus items themed on the Giant's Causeway. The cafe reminds me too much of works canteen and whilst...More

The tour bus driver thankfully advised us to avoid the Visitor Center, as the entrance to the causeway is free. I was confused. Why charge approx $15 US to enter a Visitor Center. Our guide advised us we would be paying for a very expensive...More

Avoid the visitors centre. Too expensive. Park and walk to the rocks. It's free. Don't let them push you into paying

dear pleb, most of the visitors are being advised in a way which tricks people into assuming you have to pay, being a tourist a lot of people don't feel comfortable asking and just pay up, stewards at the entrance deliver... More

Hi George, If you're not driving, then a tour is the best way and they explain everything. Cost wise, it will be better as well. Enjoy.

Hi Kevin, I was not looking out for wheelchair access but I believe the point of the shuttle buses is to help those eg with disabilities reach the causeway, so I assume they are probably able to accommodate wheelchairs... More
