“I was given a glass blowing experience for my birthday and had a really good time. Very interesting experience with friendly and skilled staff. Having the bauble to take away is also lovely. Would definitely recommend.” Siobhan, Cumbria
“Went to Cumbria Crystal today with x4 of my colleagues. We all throughly enjoyed ourselves! Well worth the money for an insight to glass blowing for all first timers. The instructor we had was really helpful, explained everything in detail and made us all feel at ease. Would highly recommend to anyone who is curious about glass blowing. Thanks to everyone at Cumbria Crystal for accommodating our group activity.” Annabeaz, Trip Advisor
