Salt - so Interesting! A great tour from a passionate guide. I never knew the production and distribution of salt could be so interesting

Interesting with unusual tasting experience An interesting visit which starts with a brief intro film followed by seeing the production process - (though on a Sunday they bulk of the staff aren't in) lots of chance to ask questions of the knowledgeable guide.It ends with a tasting session of something most people would consider to be all the same but clearly isnt. Definitely worth a visit

Well worth a visit. I had wanted to visit after watching the story of how the factory was founded on countryfile and have got to say it was worth driving down the narrow country lanes to find it!!My elderly parents who both have mobility problems were with us and were made to feel welcome and not rushed at all. Rob provided a chair for my mother to sit on in the viewing area and the whole area was easy for them to navigate.The talk was interesting and informative and we will never view salt in the same way again. Thoroughly recommended, a great couple of hours out.

Crystal in the sand Stumbled upon this place while we were out exploring, and just so happened we were there in time for a tour. Rob being so generous with his time and knowledge, and loved and admired his enthusiasm for the salt making process and the company itself. Really enjoyed our time here, and fully recommend! Thanks for Rob and the team for making us feel so welcome! 🙂

Great experience A lovely morning learning about salt production. Rob was a fab guide, not only explaining the processes but a smidgeon of Welsh too. Bless Gareth and all those boxes in the warehouse. Ps) chalk used by climbers and yogis (yoga people) alike

Great visit, well worth it. One of the highlights of our trip to Anglesey, had a brilliant small group tour hosted by Rob who was both informative and interesting. The follow up tasting session just confirmed my correct choice to leave 'manufactured' salts on the supermarket shelves. Well worth visiting.
