The main part of the building houses a fantastic Interactive Exhibition about the river and its wildlife, which is open to the public everyday from 10 am to 4 pm, with a community cafe. In addition we have the yellow room (a large open hall / classroom) which is available for hire, when not being used by visiting school groups.
