Always worth a visit when in St Helens. Part of the display area was closed while it was upgraded and made ready for a new display. You can buy items of glass made in the factory, gifts and toys, variety of books and if you time your visit you can see a demo of glass blowing (think that costs extra). Always art displays on view and many are available to purchase. There is a good cafe onsite and a fun area for children. The facility is user friendly for wheelchairs throughout and ample free parking.
This was quite a find. Nice for a quiet drink and catch up with friends. If weather permits the outside space is lovely and a 'world' away from the hustle and bustle of the town.
