In my mind, mixing old and new, is sensable and artistic. The Giant’s Causeway Visitor Centre achieves both in bundles. The centre is comprehensive. There are educational displays, this is where you start a guided tour of the Causeway, there is a good cafe and...More

What a rip off to park. Like 11 pounds per person. We parked down the street for six pounds and walked over an extra 200m. Still able to see everything and came up the Shepherd's Steps. Skipped the Vistor Center after a super bad experience...More

Absolute rip off! The national trust did not pay to build this natural wonder and yet they see fit to charge you for the privilege to see it, and not just charge you but over charge you!

The opening of the Giant’s Causeway Visitor Centre has certainly led to a huge increase in total visitor numbers to the site. If you’re not a National Trust member however it can be quite expensive to take a large family in. Luckily we are members.

We paid to park here and picked up an audio guide, which was great, as it had a lot of information. You can also join a guided group if you want. It is a tad expensive, but the displays are informative. The staff around are...More

Being charged £ 69 by the National Trust to park a car with 6 people in it and then walk on a public right of way to see the Giants Causeway is something of a disappointment. Been here a number of times over the years...More

Hi George, If you're not driving, then a tour is the best way and they explain everything. Cost wise, it will be better as well. Enjoy.
