The World of Wedgwood is intended as the ultimate destination to experience the Wedgwood Brand. Our aim is to bring the heritage and craftsmanship of Wedgwood to our visitors in a genuinely inspiring, sophisticated and elegant way.

Visit World of Wedgwood to discover new perspectives, broaden horizons, and deepen your understanding of the world and its heritage and culture.

An attraction suitable for all ages, an opportunity to ‘learn by doing’, to shop, eat and explore…

Wedgwood was founded in 1759 by Josiah Wedgwood, an astonishing craftsman and potter but also an exceptional pioneer of culture. With a rich heritage of over 250 years, Wedgwood has become a British cultural icon and is loved and admired around the world.

Discover the story of Josiah Wedgwood and his lasting influence on industry, society and local infrastructure and then take a Factory Tour to see all aspects of our production processes and techniques.

Try your hand at the potter’s wheel in the Master Craft Studio or create your own piece of Wedgwood bone china tableware in the Decorating Studio.

Afternoon tea in the Wedgwood Tea Conservatory is a truly elegant and memorable experience served on Wedgwood china by highly experienced staff. Enjoy lunch in our worker’s canteen inspired Dining Hall, delicious dishes served with a contemporary twist.

Discover cutting-edge designs, tap into a unique lifestyle and buy from the very latest ranges in our Flagship Store. Our Factory Outlet offers ever-changing ranges of retired products and factory seconds at highly discounted prices, with up to 70% off.

Explore the 240 acre Wedgwood Estate with swathes of open landscaped grounds, canals and beautiful woodlands.
