I would not have thought to visit this place but got the Wedgwood Experience as a gift. It was in fact quite interesting. The tour of the factory gave us a lot of new information about how fine china and other Wedgwood products are made. The pottery lesson was fun but did not produce any prize-winning vases. In all a...

World of Wedgwood is a nice enough place, but probably one for those interested in the history of porcelain, the purists... There is ample free parking and all on the flat so good disabled access. Good food provision; prices are reasonable and probably at the going rate. Easy to access Wi-Fi, with a good signal and no drop off. On... More

I feel Wedgewood really look after you when you do an experience day. We arrived at 10 and were given our itinerary for the day, we started with a lovely cup of coffee and shortbread, We then started to look around the museum which is very informative. Next we went on a guided factory tour which was interesting, at the... More

It cost us £15 to gain entrance to the factory and museum but we were disappointed that the factory was really, really quiet. We had a go at making our own pots at the Masterclass Studio. It costs £5 for 'make and take' and if you'd like your masterpiece to be fired & shipped to you, it'll set you back... More

We visited World of Wedgwood on 9th April when the Artisan Food and Craft Fayre was there too. The museum was excellent and worth the entrance fee. We ate freshly made artisan pizza on the lawn and enjoyed the music act that was performing for us. A very nice day out! Would heartily recommend!

The World of Wedgwood have fantastic new facilities and definitely worth the trip. Some of the new designs are just superb!!! The afternoon tea is also worth a try - the pastries were delicious.

An excellent visitor experience. We had primarily come to visit the museum which houses a world class exhibition of the amazing life and work of Josiah Wedgwood, plus such an important collection and resource of the designs subsequently produced by the company. So pleased it has been saved for the nation. But also enjoyed the Dining Hall, first for morning... More

Had a great day at World of Wedgwood. The factory tour was very interesting and the staff were very informative. The factory was fantastic. We then went to the tea bar and had some nice tea in China tea sets. Very nice!! Would go again.

We stopped here to stretch our legs on our road trip. The site itself was very impressive. The service was very disappointing in the store. I was after a very special teapot as a gift but not one of the staff members would bother to stop talking to each other to serve me. After doing several laps of the store... More

I was amazed at this museum, shop, factory and restaurant complex. Right from when you see this amazing building you will be wanting to see more. The Museum is a fascinating look at the history of Wedgewood with beautiful pieces from their archives and wonderful guides to help you with any questions. The factory can be accessed via a tour...
