Really easy to find on the main tourist street. It's part of the Huguenot Museum, so follow the signs there. Staff were friendly and helpful when we went. Shop had reasonably priced items the kids loved. Lots of great places advertised.

Staff were really friendly and helpful with all our questions. Lots of nice little souvenirs as well. We didn't visit the café but did use the toilets and they were really clean.

You'll all be familiar with the model tourist information centre dispensing leaflets about a town's hotels, restaurants and attractions, possibly giving away a free map from a roll, and selling the odd guide book or jar of locally made jam or chutney. But how many...More

Moody staff. Tables with plates left on then. Food expensive. £1.60 for a cup of tea. !!! Rip off. Abusing the historic area by charging ridiculous prices.
