The Giant's Causeway is a World Heritage site and National Nature Reserve maintained by the National Trust. A volcanic eruption over 60 million years ago created a complex of over 38,000 basalt columns that seem to form stepping stones out to sea towards Scotland.
Take in the geology, flora and fauna of international importance as you walk along the Causeway and discover the wishing chair, the harp and the organ: the 3 collections of curious columns that will set little minds a-wondering...
The Centre, which is open daily, provides an exhibition and short audio-visual presentation that allows visitors to learn about the origins of the Causeway the mythology, the science, the nature and is the ideal starting point for walks along the coastal and cliff top paths. There are guided walks and the Centre also provides a bus service to and from the main causeway. The Centre also has a gift shop and visitor facilities.
