Come and see our craftsmen at work in the heart of the Potteries, utilising unique artisan skills and techniques honed over 250 years at Barlaston, the home of Wedgwood.
The tour offers an indepth view of all aspects of quality ceramic production including casting, figure making, pattern decorating and hand painting, ornamentation and gilding. Come and see iconic Jasper pieces in production showcasing the pinnacle of ceramic craftsmanship.
We offer self-guided and guided Factory Tours. Guided tours are available at regular intervals on a first come, first served basis, allocated on arrival. Guided tours last approximately 1 hour.
Production on the factory is reduced at weekends and during factory shutdown periods so the number of workers you might see on the tour route will be limited. Whilst you can still learn all about production and experience the factory environment, we would recommend that you take a tour with one of our knowledgeable guides when available.
Latest admission to the factory tour is 3pm each day.
