Visited the center as that where the SatNav took us for Three Bays Cliffs. The parking was £3, but free if visiting the center, so we decided to go for it. To say I am impressed with the place I would lie. It is good fun for kids and what makes you feel that the money were well spent are... More

We enjoyed a lovely lunch here on the sunny terrace above the stream. The exhibits in the museum were most interesting too. We were a little short of time, but as we are visiting Gower again later in the year, we shall return for a more detailed visit and include some of the shops on site too.

Stopped off here expecting just a few information boards. So much more than that, with animals, trip round the mill, little old shops, cafe. Great for small children

A very pleasant walk around this centre with several exhibitions and something for all the family. Had photo taken with Captain Pugwash. Coffees and cake on the river terrace also very enjoyable. You can also park here if visiting and then walk to theThree Cliffs Bay which was lovely.Regards Gary Saunders

Turned up with 3 generations not expecting much but were pleasantly surprised - it probably helped that we were almost the only visitors there (would hate to see it in the high season) Enjoyed the Mill Tour,glass blowing,wood turning, the animals and spent an enjoyable 3 hours there. Good cafe and excellent bakery outside A little run down but it... More

We visited today to take advantage of the 'Pirate Week' as it is half term. We paid £24 entrance fee which we didn't mind but we had to pay a FURTHER £1.50 or £2.50 for each activity our children wanted to do!! This made us really annoyed as we felt the activities weren't value for money. For £1.50 our children... More
