Pocket Guide: Hanley Potteries Museum Hanley Potteries Museum Hotels

The Hanley and Gladstone Potteries Museum in Longton, Stoke-on-Trent, is one of the best museums dedicated to the history of the pottery industry in Stoke-on-Trent and the surrounding area, known as 'The Potteries'. The museum shows how stunning bone china was produced during the Victorian Era in the workshops and kilns of the hugely successful Gladstone China Works, the last Victorian ceramics factory left in the United Kingdom.

Every day the museum runs pottery demonstrations and gives its visitors the opportunity to make a bone china flower, decorate a pre-made piece of pottery or even to thrown their own pot on the wheel.

The museum shop sells a wide range of original items such as unique pieces of pottery produced by the museum itself. If you want to learn more then you can also pick up DVDs and books on the history of the local pottery industry.
