Treat yourself 

After a bracing coastal walk - and braving the rope bridge - you'll have worked up an appetite for a delicious treat in our Weighbridge Café. Don't forget to browse the gift section for a souvenir - the majority of our gifts and souvenirs are crafted by artists or producers from the UK or Ireland.
