The centre and nearby Marconi monument celebrate the site of the first transatlantic wireless signal. It is part of the history of early long-distance communication, something we take so much for granted these days. The centre though set up by the National Trust and very...More

We really were looking forward to our visit but when we arrived the sign said opening hours were in the afternoon and early evening only and we were there at 10'30am. Shame.
