The Wedgwood Visitor Centre is a fascinating and revealing insight into a pottery renowned throughout the world. A great social and environmental reformer, he built for his potters a complete village, Etruria, with good housing and a modern factory.

The tour follows the entire production process from raw clay to throwing, forming and casting, glazing, firing and decorating. It reveals a continuing tradition of superb craftsmanship and shows how the vision and brilliance of one man in the 18th century lives on, hand in hand with the finest technology of today.

The permanent Exhibition, telling the history of Wedgwood through rare Museum pieces, audio- visual programmes and individual audio guides in a choice of 5 languages. The tours take in almost the whole of Wedgwood's extensive manufacturing operation and show both the automation and the continuing hand skills still in use on the factory. Visitors can throw a Jasper pot on the wheel, paint a ceramic plate, cup or flower, make a Jasper medallion, decorate a turned jasper vase or commission a unique figurine.
