With free admission, free parking and free glassmaking demonstrations the Caithness Crystal Visitor Centre is well worth a visit! The whole family will find something to enjoy at this wonderfull indoor tourist attraction. Adults and children can enjoy the experience of blowing their very own glass tumbler, friendship ball or vase. For a really unique memento why not have your child's hand or foot cast in glass? With the careful guidance of our Master Glassmaker, a whole range of craft experiences are available and start from as little as £6.95!!

This was a great place to visit but close in February after many year in Kings Lynn. I believe you may still fine a glass blowing in Langham.

Very interesting watching the glass blowing but it is very small area. The shop attached has many lovely glass and China items for sale as well as other items. Lovely cafe with nice cakes for tea but they do close very promptly.

Unfortunately this attraction has closed down, I actually attended the closing down sale and purchased some glasses. This was very interesting to see especially for school visits.

This attraction is now closed, great shame as the showroom, glass blowing section and the restaurant were all well worth a visit, I for one will miss it

Totally gutted they have closed down. As an avid collector of Caithness Crystal I always wanted to visit and planned to do so this year. My auntie, who lives down there, just rang to say that they had closed down following a 3 day sale/
