Cumbria Crystal have a team of 22 highly skilled workers who create beautiful and elegant glassware using methods that have barely changed since the Roman era. Visitors are welcome to watch them in action on a self-guided tour of the factory on Mondays to Fridays between 9am until 12:30 pm and again from 1pm until 4:30pm (3pm on Fridays). Best of all, it’s completely free.

If you want to take it one step further, then you can book yourself onto an experience day where you will learn the basics of glass blowing and create your own beautiful item to take away.

You can create your own bauble for Christmas, make a special paperweight, or even make a tumbler or a vase. The factory also offers a full day of tuition in the art of glass blowing that can be tailored to your needs depending on what kind of items you would like to create. Costs for these experiences vary and gift vouchers are available.
