I'd like to extol the wonders of one of Stoke on Trent's last pieces of heritage: The Gladstone Pottery Museum



Description:
As if frozen in time, Gladstone remains the only complete Victorian pottery factory from the days when coal-burning ovens made the world's first bone china. Traditional skills, original workshops, the cobbled yard and huge bottle kilns create an atmospheric time warp which has no equal. See live pottery demonstrations and have a go yourself. Refresh yourself in our delightful tearoom. Find some treasures to take home in our large gift shop. Designated an outstanding museum.

They even have authentic smells and a sewer with squeaky rat noises, heheheh. There are bottle kilns, throwing and firing, a toilet collection, a Doctor's house outlining gruesome diseases that plagued the area, and a big old steam engine. What more could you want?

Charges:
Adults £4.95, Children £3.95, Family Ticket (2 adults, 2 children) £14. Children under 16 must be accompanied by an adult.

Museum Passport - the passport provides free entry to Gladstone Pottery Museum, Etruria Industrial Museum, and Ford Green Hall for a year, as well as a 10% discount at the Potteries Museum & Art Gallery Foyer Shop and many local attractions. Passports charges: adults £7.50, concessions £6.50, family £16.50, additional child £2.
