Ceramic Attractions in Stoke-on-Trent
Stoke-on-Trent's ceramic attractions tell the story of how our wonderful city has been shaped by its production of pottery for centuries and grown into a city with a globally renowned reputation and history of innovation, science, art, culture, and entrepreneurialism.
The history and heritage of Stoke-on-Trent is well-preserved at numerous attractions including World of Wedgwood, is a unique visitor experience celebrating the very best of British industrial and design heritage; and the award-winning Gladstone Pottery Museum, a complete Victorian pottery factory, boasting interactive exhibitions and a "Flushed with Pride" tribute to toilets past, present and future!
Middleport Pottery, the home of world-renowned Burleigh pottery, is a fantastic experience where visitors can go behind-the-scenes and learn about the people and events that have shaped the factory over the years. As the last working Victorian pottery in the UK, the site continues to produce Burleigh pottery using the same traditional handcraft techniques as in the 1880s.
Factory tours are available at the World of Wedgwood, Moorcroft, Middleport Pottery and Emma Bridgewater where you can learn about the skills and craftsmanship that go into producing our world-famous pottery.
