The city is even home to the World of Wedgwood visitor attraction where you can experience a factory tour and learn about the art of pottery.

Other top attractions in Stoke-on-Trent include Trentham Gardens, a stunning Italianate landscape garden with a shopping village, the Regent Theatre known for its exceptional Christmas pantomime, and Waterworld, the UK’s first indoor water park.
