Had a spare hour so headed off not knowing what to expect.

The 'boys' (21 & 17) soon decided they wanted to get involved and make a candle....

Definitely fun for all ages, especially when there are big kids have a trip back down memory lane!

Boys really enjoyed dipping the candles in the different colour wax then cutting and bending/ twisting it into amazing patterns. Very effective. We had to wait a bit but it was interesting watching others and boys planned what they were going to do.

We went there and saw the gentleman make the candles. We bought two of them even though they were not really our taste, but we thought they were quite well made and we enjoyed the hour or so that we spent there. It is more like a big tourist shop though ....

A tardis of a shop. Lots of lovely gift ideas and cards for all occasions. Nearly forgot the candles you can buy! Amazing choice of candles and similar. Good stop for unusual birthday or Christmas gifts. Highly recommend a visit!! Haven't made a candle here but have bought plenty candles and other gifts.

You can make your own candles here but it can be busy and beware queues! So we didn't bother but lovely gift shop to browse around and well worth a visit!
