Pocket Guide: Stoke-on-Trent Gladstone Pottery Museum Hotels

Stoke-on-Trent and the surrounding area (known as The Potteries) are world famous for their history of producing ceramics and – you guessed it – pottery! The Gladstone Pottery Museum, Longton, tells the history of this world-renowned industry and its impact on the region’s economy and development.

See how beautiful bone china was first produced in the workshops and giant kilns of the once great Gladstone China Works, which is now the last intact Victorian ceramics factory in the United Kingdom.

Although Gladstone itself wasn't particularly famous in its day, it was typical of the hundreds of independent potteries that produced huge numbers of china and other wares for export all over the world.

Throw Your Own Pot

The museum puts on pottery demonstrations every day and gives visitors the chance to throw their own pot, decorate a piece of pottery or make a flower from bone china. The Gladstone Shop stocks a range of original gifts that aren't available in high street shops, including local history DVDs, books and pottery produced within the museum.

Longton is easy to get to by car, being very close to Junction 15 and 16 of the M6 and Junction 24a of the M1. The nearest train station is in Longton town centre which is just a ten minute walk from the museum. Buses frequently run to Longton from Stoke-on-Trent's city centre. At the front of the museum you'll find Blue Badge disabled and cycle parking. Car parking is found just off Chadwick Street and is free for museum visitors. The museum itself is located on Uttoxter Road and is open from Tuesday to Saturday, and it will take around two or three hours to fully explore this fascinating museum.

Staying in The Potteries is easy, as there are plenty of hotels in Staffordshire offering good quality accommodation. Stoke-on-Trent itself is packed full of hotels and B&Bs ranging from two star to five star hotels and is a fantastic base from which to explore the rest of the area and beyond. Plenty more hotels are also available in nearby Stafford and Cannock.
