The candle making is a fun activity for children, albeit that it will only keep them occupied for circa half-an-hour, which is probably not sufficient time in which to browse the Gift Shop which is excellent, containing an interesting and varied range of high quality goods.

Guernsey Candles is a lovely place to visit.
On entering the workshop you can see candles being made and for a fee can have a go but there is no fee if you just want to have a look around.
There is a large gift shop selling various handmade candles, island souvenirs, card and gifts.
Nice to pop in and have a look around.

We, Dutch mum of six, went there today with three of my girls. It was so great. The candlemaking was amazing; even my eight year old made a super candle and the staff were very friendly and helpfull. Definitely highly recommended!

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.
