Sit back, relax and enjoy your day as you are chauffeured into the Potteries to the World of Wedgwood – your guide will give you insights on the region, Northern England, its industrial past and how the famous brand fits into it all. Your 8-hour tour is a varied and well-paced itinerary for you to immerse yourself in your visit to Stoke-on-Trent.

Your tour includes a factory visit where you go behind the scenes to see all the production and delicate craft processes that contribute to the making of Wedgwood’s ceramics as well as a visit to the wonderful museum. Culminate it all with traditional Afternoon Tea in the Wedgwood Tea Room (sure with a Wedgwood tea set)!
