If you have an hour or so to spare when in Limoges, this is well worth a visit to get an insight into the skill of those making this beautiful porcelain. The actual factory is now out of town in Orator, but this section has been retained as a working museum of the many generations of Bernadaud that have kept... More

We enjoyed this tour . Learning about Porcelain is really interesting. This was a highlight of our trip to Limoges, and actually our purpose for our trip, so it didn't disappoint.

This factory outlet offers a lot of porcelain with minor blemish/ second quality for a really good price. We will come again.

Interesting porcelain factory, however, we visited on a 'free' day which meant tours is English were unavailable. It's worth checking before you make the journey if your French is limited. Good factory shop (which you can visit without taking a tour).

My Blue China exhibition is an amazing combination of traditional shape and design with a 21st century focus, it was well worth taking the time to find the factory.

Excellent place to visit, great informations, and exquisite selection on store. Of course, you could spend 500 EUR in just four pieces. Excellent opportunity to buy souvenirs and decor for your home.

Lovely visitors area and shop. Everything is expensive but very beautiful so is worth a visit but not very affordable. Really difficult to find in Limoges even with a map

We went to visit the factory as 25 years ago when we married we had a dinner set from Limoges. The staff were unfriendly and we were made to feel that they were doing us a favour by letting us visit. The factory tour was unavailable as it was not the holiday season. The whole attitude was of inflexibility and... More

Worth a visit. Bring your pocket book if you like pottery and china. I enjoyed the factory tour which was free.
