Our visit to the Royal Delft factory was fun and informative. I think the factory does a good job of balancing giving you details you need to understand their processes with the need to be efficient with your time. This company has something like a 400 or 500 year history and it is clear that they make great products. It was nice to watch them in action doing real work. They also had quite a nice little museum. We did not take advantage of their little restaurant so I cannot comment on that.
What a beautiful part of the town. The tour was so informative and fascinating. We learned a lot about Delft. During the tour you watch them work up close. Could not believe we were in amongst everything on the factory floor! Enjoyed a lovely lunch in the courtyard and then a wander through⁰ the shop. Was pleasantly surprised that the shop contained Royal Delft for every budget so able to bring a little Dutch home. Thoroughly recommend to everyone and transport was so easy too!
If you are into pottery this is a great place to visit. You can see the different stages of the process and during the tour you can see a student paint the pottery for the different designs. As well as see how they bake the pottery. The tour is not long and you can see some of the older works done throughout the years. Also if you are visiting the country and you feel as though you missed seeing Rembrandt's Night watch, since it's currently being studied, Royal Delft has there tile version on display! 😁
Incredibly interesting, very friendly and helpful folks, so much history! If you love Royal Delft, or any Delftware, you need to make a point to go. Well worth the trip!
Lovely small exhibit on delftware. Overall really enjoyed it and it is a must visit if you are in delft. The gift shop is quite large however the handmade pieces are very expensive. The interior courtyard is beautiful and peaceful in the morning.
