This centre is a gem. A precious little find. Ignore all the glitzy in your face 'Jet' shops all along Church Street. Make your way to the very end, step down the rickety steps and back in time to a Victorian time warp. The whole experience is lovely, Imogen is charming and knows her stuff!! You definitely get what you pay for without having to pay for fancy sales patter and bright lights. You get honest Whitby Jet pieces made by somebody who obviously loves her job. A true crafts lady.

I had a look round the exhibition of traditional jet crafting equipment then had a chat with the girl who worked there producing jet jewellery. Very interesting and bought a nice pair of jet earrings.

We visited on Heritage Open Days. This is an interesting set of jet working tools which, with helpful signboards, tell the story of jet working well. A good complement to other displays of jewellery an finished goods.
