A few museum pieces but despite a very pleasant lady in charge who was willing to tell us everything we might want to know I'm afraid it wasn't really worth the trip for us. Sorry!

Small but interesting museum featuring local subjects. Nice gardens and able to sample the mineral water

More on display than you might expect and FREE entry! Very friendly and knowledgeable staff - definitely worth the walk up the hill.

Nice little museum with some local history. Very helpful lady in the museum. Most of the wells are underground but garden is pretty and includes a nursery. Stunning views of the local area.

Randomly took in this road after seeing the classic maroon road signs expecting one of those algal covered, long-abandoned roadside wells, hence was very pleasantly surprised with what we found. Centre was closed when we arrived but it was out-of-season, so can't complain. I'd imagine...More
