Stoke-on-Trent is world famous for its pottery and no visit to the city would be complete without experiencing this unique museum. Discover how bone china tableware was made in the original workshops and giant bottle kilns of the former Gladstone China Works, now preserved as the last complete Victorian pottery factory in the country.  Gladstone was typical of hundreds of similar factories in the area making everyday ceramic items for the mass market. Experience for yourself what conditions were like for the men, women and children who worked at the centre of the world’s pottery industry.

We’ll first have a guided tour of the museum, then you can try your hand at making a bone china flower or decorating a piece a pottery or making a clay pot to create a unique souvenir of your visit
