In the Visitor Centre hot and cold drinks, crisps and chocolate biscuits are available as well as the very popular bird seed. Profits are used to fund events and items for the benefit of park users.
Several publications are available at the Visitor Centre to allow visitors to make the most of the Vale. Some can be read and downloaded here.
