Notes

Cumbria Crystal is a fully working factory. Visitors are welcome to watch the artisans at work. It should be noted that we cannot guarantee what they will be making on any day. Factory staff are generally unable to stop what they are doing to talk to guests. However shop staff are very happy to talk visitors through the processes.
