Overview

The most prestigious glass shop in the heart of the historic centre of Bristol, a step away from St. Nicholas Market. Here you can see the entire range of glass made by Bristol Blue Glass Bedminster, the workshops being on the site of the Bedminster Glassworks, founded in 1716. The same exquisite traditional craftsmanship can be admired in all our glass. In addition to our own products, we also sell a small selected range of interesting antique and vintage glass for the discerning collector. We look forward to welcoming you to one of the most fascinating shops in Bristol.

Great experience blowing your own baubles. The staff are super friendly, knowledgeable and helpful. It is very interesting to watch the glass blowers at work and then being able to try yourself. Can’t wait for them to arrive in the post.
