Really well laid out museum dating right back to the beginnings of the pottery up to some great modern pieces and shows how they have developed over a long period. Good things to do for children too.

If you love the history of pottery, this is the place to be. There are rows upon rows of clearly labelled exhibits for your perusal. It showcases the products from The 18th to 21st Century.

See the WorldofWedgwood website - click on tickets. (Links are forbidden!) Frankly I think it's expensive!

How do I get here from the Stoke-on-Trent Railway station? Is the cab the easiest way to get here? If so, how much would be? Also is it easy to get a cab from the museum to the railway station?
