Fodor's Review

The stripped down, low-fi, traditional art of storytelling has had something of a resurgence in Britain over the last decade or so, and there are few places better than this to experience a master storyteller in full flow. Housed in a modern building that manages to blend seamlessly with the historic structures on either side, the center hosts a year-round program of storytelling, theater, music, and literary events. A café serves lunch, tea, and home-baked cakes. The center's storytellers also manage the tours of the John Knox House next door and wider tours of the historic Nethbrow district.
