World of Wedgwood

Factory in Stoke-on-Trent

Set in attractive parkland 8 miles south of Hanley, the modern production centre for Josiah Wedgwood's porcelain empire displays an extensive collection of historic pieces, including plenty of Wedgwood's delicate, neoclassical blue-and-white jasperware at its museum. On weekdays, there are self-guided factory tours and first-come, first-served guided factory tours lasting one hour. Pot throwing and design workshops take place at its Master Craft and Decorating studios.
