Turner Museum of Glass

Built due to the passion and dedication of a single man, the Turner Museum of Glass is a one of a kind museum dedicated to everything related to glass. Founded in 1943 by Professor W.E.S. Turner, the museum is considered as one the UK's most interesting and comprehensive collections of 19th and 20th Century glass. The core of the museum’s charm is the energetic research and collection done by W.E.S Turner and as a result the museum contains such artifacts which may not be available anywhere else. Today there are about 380 pieces of different types of glass items on permanent display. Not only are the glass pieces important here, the museum also celebrates the skill and artistry of glass makers throughout the ages.

The Emporium

Over fifty dealers buy and sell collectibles from stands in Sheffield Antiques Emporium, resulting in a little Aladdin's cave where you can browse through a huge range of items from different eras. Art Deco and Art Nouveau rub shoulders with high Victoriana and treasures from the thirties and forties. The emporium is open seven days a week for antique furniture, militaria, books, postcards, architectural salvage, porcelain, china, lighting, silver, soft furnishings and lots more. Even if you have no intention of buying anything, this is a great place to browse and to absorb the atmosphere. And, when you get tired, a coffee shop serving drinks, snacks and home made cakes is available on site.

Treak Cliff Cavern

One of many attractions in Derbyshire's beautiful Peak District, this can truly claim to be unique in the sense that it is the world's only source of Blue John. This mineral, whose name is believed to derive from the French bleu-jaune, or blue-yellow, is a form of fluorspar and was known to the Romans. The mineral was and is made into a variety of beautiful ornaments; 18th and 19th century Blue John urns are highly prized in the antiques trade. Visitors can take guided tours of the cavern and there is a gift shop where you can buy examples of Blue John ornaments.
