Gladstone Pottery Museum

Place to visit

Discover the world of pottery at Gladstone Pottery Museum Stoke on Trent has become synonymous with pottery and the Gladstone Pottery Museum tells the tale of this part of England and its artistic pedigree. This is the last complete Victorian pottery factory in the country and it has been beautifully preserved to be a living legacy on this area's amazing creative heritage. You'll discover how bone china tableware was made in the original workshops and glimpse the giant bottle kilns of the former Gladstone China Works, which opened its doors in 1780 and fired its ovens for the last time in 1960. After all that browsing, there's a lovely little tea room to enjoy which overlooks the pretty cobbled yard and is open seven days a week selling sandwiches and afternoon tea.
