“Interesting little centre”
Reviewed 7 August 2014

Only spent ten minutes in here as it's only a small place. Kids liked testing the equipment and looking through the telescope and binoculars. Also got a free little windmill each. Friendly, informative staff.

“Informative and a bit different”
Reviewed 30 June 2014

My husband and I called in here on a day trip to the seaside. We're interested in solar energy and wind power so it was great to have half an hour or so talking to the staff about the UK's first offshore wind farm. There are some easy-to-read boards with facts and figures about the wind farm and a couple of hands-on activities, too.

Call in and have a look around - you probably won't be disappointed.

“So informative”
Reviewed 24 June 2014 via mobile

The staff were experienced and knowledgeable. There were several interactive displays and the visitor centre is located near the pier so the wind farm can be seen through the windows. This was the first offshore wind farm in the UK and has been a massive success according to the staff. If you have any doubts about the benefits of wind powered electricity generation, go and talk to the staff in this visitor centre.

“Dire. Propaganda and cluelessness.”
Reviewed 6 June 2014

This centre is nothing more than a propaganda machine for wind energy.

I spoke with both the guides at this centre. They are totally clueless and not able to engage in any intelligent debate about wind energy and other alternative forms of energy, having been brainwashed into merely repeating the e.on pro wind energy drivel.

“A good free attraction on the seafront”
Reviewed 29 August 2013

A very interesting attraction, which is completely free, and provides you with information on the local Off Shore Wind Farm. This attracting is run by E-On and is a great place to go and find out about alternative energy sources.
