HOUSE OF MARBLES
Leave Newton Abbot and head for Bovey Tracey (A382) and Pottery Road is where you will find House of Marbles. Admission and parking is free, so there’s a great start!
See the largest collection of marbles in the world and visit the biggest marble run in the UK. Watch glass being blown then sit and enjoy a snack in the restaurant.
There are examples of both ancient and modern marbles and machinery to show how they are made. Glassblowers will show you how such objects as wine glasses and vases are created, or why not book a course and learn to do it for yourself.
Browse the Glass Gallery where there is an array of gifts and downstairs one of the best gift shops full of games and toys from around the world. The Clearance Shop offers the chance to purchase seconds and over runs at reduced prices.
