National Glass Centre

No trip to National Glass Centre would be complete without a wander around the galleries and to see a glass blowing demonstration; feel the heat of the furnace and witness for yourself the skill of the glass blower. Round off your visit by taking a walk on the glass roof. Have you got the nerve to look down!
