Middleport Pottery Stoke-on-Trent visitor attraction

Factory Tours

The Middleport Pottery factory tour is unique. It offers the chance to see pottery being made using the same handcraft methods as in the 1880s. The tour will lead you through each stage of production in sequence, showing how a lump of clay is transformed into a finished piece of pottery. You will also see the steam engine which once powered the whole factory.

Each tour lasts for around one hour. Tours MUST be booked in advance.

Tours of the factory run from Monday – Thursday at 11am and 2pm, and on Fridays at 10.30am only. Please arrive 10 minutes before your tour starts to avoid disappointment.

There are no tours at weekends or on bank holidays.

We regret that children under 10 are not permitted on factory tours.




Under 18s; Students (with a student card); senior citizens (over 65); local residents
