Staff helpful. Good range of information leaflets & giftware. Can recommend a guided tour from here around the west of the town centre - saw lots of interesting places/buildings/statues & learnt about lots of different people. Often quirky, not obvious places.

This building is a converted church and has been done very sensitively. The layout is attractive with display cabinets displaying hand made jewellery and other products. Tickets for any number of future events can be purchased from here.The staff are really helpful. I thoroughly recommend.
