We visited the Wedgwood Museum on the advice of my son. It is a free experience that highlights the true genius of Joshua Wedgwood. Very interesting and with the factory shop makes it well worth a visit.

There have been several Wedgewood museums, this being the latest modern, purpose built museum in 2015, that forms the wider World of Wedgewood experience. Most people associate Wedgewood with the Blue & White Jasper and the Cameo's but there is so much more to their vast array of ceramics, fine china and decorative art. This well laid out museum definitely demonstrates this as it effortlessly takes you around through time and the development of fashion, style and production methods. There is the opportunity to eat or to have afternoon tea in sophisticated surroundings. Of course the gift shop is on another level in terms of class and layout but you can still browse freely. Not everything is full up and running yet due to Covid such as the master craft studio or the decorative experience but don't let this stop you as the Museum itself is FREE to enter.

My other half and I booked a table here in the tea rooms for lunch time in the hope of having a cream tea for two. When we arrived the man seated us and handed us an afternoon tea menu; we thought there had just been a mix up however when we requested a normal menu he said we could not just order tea and scones we had to have the afternoon tea (£50!). We were very disappointed, how can they serve an afternoon tea but not just scones and tea alone? Clearly they’re trying to make more money but the tea room was dead and that’s probably why. We went to the dining hall instead, I requested a coffee with soya milk, they did not have soya milk and said they couldn’t put it in my drinks I would have to pour it in myself, the only milk they had was almond. For a tea room they should have an extensive choice of milks, likewise they did not have any coffee syrups. Very disappointed. Will not come here again.

Response from WorldOfWedgwood, Manager at Wedgwood Museum
Responded 2 Sep 2020
Thank you for your review following your recent visit to our Tea Room. I am disappointed to read that your experience didn’t meet your expectations. During this time we have taken the decision to restrict our menu in the tea room. All of our menus are available on our website for visitors to view before a visit. Following your feedback we have reviewed the milk situation and have made sure that both Almond and Soya milk is available, for this over site I would like to apologise. I would like to thank you again for taking the time to leave your comments, without visitors such as yourself we would be unable to constantly review and improve our offering. I hope that in time you will chose to return to us.

This is a large museum where you can trace the history of Joshua Wedgwood’s finest chinaware. It is really interesting to see how the fashion changed over the years and there are many exhibits to view. All the staff are friendly and helpful. We found the museum to be a bit sterile and would have preferred to see a mock up of how the chinaware was made. Having seen the real nitty gritty of the Middleport pottery later in the day, it made this museum feel as though it was a bit lacking. Well worth a visit though as it has free entry. There is a Factory shop on site and a nice looking restaurant - which we didn’t visit.

There is an amazing range of Wedgwood from Josiah's earliest days through to the late 20th Century. It is arranged in a way which is very descriptive and easy to follow. We became extremely engrossed in our journey through all the eras of manufacture and the associated history connected to society as it was through the times.
