  • We were constantly surprised during our visit to World of Wedgwood. First of all, this was by the sheer size and professionalism of the venue and secondly by the wealth of its attractions. It offers a...  more »
  • We went on the spur of the moment, walking round the factory watching the general making and more interestingly the careful hand-decorating of pieces was fascinating. Highly recommend doing the plate ...  more »
  • The World has three parts, the museum (which is excellent and free, see separate reviews), the cafes and shops, and the factory tour. For the shops, arrive with plenty of cash or credit, you'll get li...  more »

  • Went along to the monthly Arts & Crafts festival being held, as we'd heard goods things from friends. They weren't wrong. Good mix of stalls, all selling stuff, whether foods or A&C, at sensible prices compared to another popular event which we attend regularly. After an hour or so of pleasant browsing, turned our attention to the World of Wedgewood itself. Stunning displays, an area for kids to 'have a go' and a lovely cafe area - plus a proper Tea Room. We finally managed to find an empty table to enjoy an afternoon tea with sandwiches and scones. All served the way they should be. Bliss.
  • Well worth a visit if you are interested in the industrial revolution or fine bone china. The museum is very interesting as is the factory tour. There is an excellent coffee shop and tea room. The outlet store had some bargains. The biggest shocker was that much of the stock in their flagship store in the heart of the potteries is MADE IN INDONESIA. So sad to see how little china is being made in Barlaston now, Josiah must be spinning in his grave...
  • Was born near here 51 years ago, finally went with kids and kids had a great time decorating and throwing pots at extremely good value. Only £2 to just play, £5 to take away and £10 to have fired. Kids (with help) got unexpectedly good results so paid the £10. Also painting pre fired pots was very cheap and the kids had loads of fun painting them. The cafe is good too. Enjoyable half day
  • An enjoyable summer holiday visit with my daughter and her friend. They decorated a pot and threw one. Both were enjoyable experiences. The restaurant is not cheap but the presentation is first class. We went for the light nights option which was not badly priced Childrens meals are excellent value with the added bonus of a play area. Definitely recommend for a days outing.
  • We spent a wonderful morning here. The tour was quite educational and we learned a lot about both the history and techniques of pottery making. It was well worth the admission price.
