Visitor Centre

The first phase of our brand new Visitor Experience is here!  We want to welcome you to our new and improved visitor experience. Our creative team of in-house staff have been working tirelessly for the last six months to make something quite special, something that is both a leisure experience as well as being a lasting archive of some of the wonderful craftmanship of its North Devon’s glass makers.

The new Visitor Experience houses an updated and upgraded Timeline Exhibition of Dartington Crystal’s products spanning over 50 years of history from 1967 to the present day.

An Audio Visual Theatre provides details of the history and heritage of Dartington Crystal as well as giving an insight into the modern day factory.

As well as being able to see glass making demonstrations in a newly installed studio furnace area, Master Engraver Nick Davey will be creating master pieces right before your eyes.


Something for all the family? 

A range of Creative Activities are available including creating a cast of your child’s hand forever in glass, as the perfect gift or souvenir.

While children and adults can join in the fun together by painting glasses as a souvenir of their visit.
