I attended World of Wedgwood with a friend in February on a Monday lunch. We were greeted by a lady on the desk who was very friendly and talked us through it all with a enthusiasm. So we went for the full tour and museum. The whole building is impressive and very modern too. We went for the self guided... More

The world of Wedgwood was very interesting if you like pottery. There is lots to see and read about. There is a lovely tea and coffee restaurant with some lovely cakes to eat. When we went as a family it was an open day and was therefore free. If you go you should have a lovely day out.

I visited the centre to search for a xmas gift. I was born in the area and have family who have worked in the potteries. The whole site is amazing. Wonderfully artful. The factory tour was fascinating. The retailers professional and there is a variety of choices for food. I delighted in the main restaurant and was titilated to be... More

We visited with our children, aged 4 and 7 and paid in advance for a family ticket including a factory tour and the museum. The tour guide was very good, knowledgeable and obviously interested. In the hour, we saw the production process, meeting staff along the way and actually seeing them in action. Then we had lunch in the Dining... More

Thoroughly enjoyed the visit. £42.00 for 2 of us to visit museum, factory and for my wife to throw a pot. Not cheap but a top quality experience.

I love Wedgwood so going to the factory sounded like a great idea. The staff could not be more helpful and welcoming. Wait for the guided tour, it is fascinating. The work that goes into each piece phenomenal. As a bonus the craftsman sang happy birthday to me. We also had afternoon tea which was delicious!

We found the museum very informative. In fact there is so much to take in you could spend a lot of time there. The exhibits were generally well presented but some were a bit dark. The reception gave us a guide with key pieces to see but the print was a bit small in some of the lights. Great coffee... More

An excellent afternoon at World of Wedgwood, very helpful and informative staff. Something different to do on a wet winter afternoon, well worth a visit. We went as a family group age range from 21 to 93 and we all enjoyed it, even had a go at throwing a pot! All the staff were friendly and made us feel very... More

We did the combined factory tour and museum and both were excellent. The factory itself is modern, clean and staffed by people who obviously enjoy working there and our guide was knowledgeable and easy to talk to. The tour lasted for an hour after which you could retrace your steps to have a longer look or spend an extra £5... More
