Rather small for a tourist centre, but has the usual stuff - no pavement outside so be careful of traffic

It is closed and there is a garden centre in its place. The garden centre is worth a visit and has a nice tearoom

If you want to visit any attraction/shop/lake/cruise, make sure it would take less than 2 hours.
