Lots of cool marbles & shapes of all sizes. Glass work really classy. Amazing colours - but costs a bit. We got some cool spinning glass tops for the kids. Glass maker doing his work - good for a chat. Enjoyable visit.

The World of Marbles id definitely worth a visit when visiting Sheffield. The glass work is exquisite and the puzzles and games worth a look as well. Certainly something for both young and old. Very hard to resist buying something...and not only marbles for purchase.
