    What is the Visitor Experience?

    There’s more to the Giant’s Causeway than the stones. Immerse yourself in the complete Visitor Experience with a journey of discovery around the services and facilities offered at the Visitor Centre. Here you can choose to go on a walking or audio guide tour, eat, shop and discover the science and stories of the site through our interactive exhibits.

    For those who only want to visit the stones, please see other ways of getting here.

    Discover the myths and legends of the Giant's Causeway through our self-led interactive exhibition, suitable for all ages. Children will be drawn to the cinema-sized screen showing a Finn McCool animation and adults will enjoy the historical soundbites at the listening posts.

    Remember, proceeds from your ticket sales go towards the conservation of the causeway and other National Trust sites on the North Coast.
