The Potteries

Being based in Staffordshire it would be rude not to talk about pots, and we have a high passion of all things pottery.

Stoke-on-Trent is home to the ‘potteries’ an area which once full of bottle kilns and smoke, it now houses some of the best state of the art factories creating items of amazing skill and beauty.

Full of history, from Josiah Wedgwood to Sir Stanley Matthews, with so much to see and do sometimes a day just isn’t enough, we have come up with a couple of tours to get your Jiggers Jigging and Jollyers Jollying. But of course please do get in touch for more information.
