The Tourist Attractions of Stoke on Trent:

Visiting Stoke-on-Trent you’ll find this city has many of the facilities and services that you would expect from a city in the UK, plus a selection of museums, culture, recreation and more, but what sets Stoke-on-Trent apart from other cities is the pottery industry. There are several attractions centred around this industry including factory tours, gift shops, and even a museum dedicated to the industry.

Potteries Museum and Art Gallery
Before visiting any of the factories it’s worthwhile to visit the Potteries Museum and Art Gallery as this gives you a great insight into the industry. The museum is also famous for its collection as it houses one of the best and largest collections of Staffordshire ceramics. It’s not just pottery and ceramics on display here though as the museum also has exhibits on local history and costume, natural history and archaeology.

Gladstone Pottery Museum
Stoke-on-Trent is also home to the Gladstone Pottery Museum. This is quite different to the Potteries Museum as Gladstone is a working museum with historic buildings from a factory that opened here in 1787.

Wedgwood Museum
The world famous Wedgwood company is the most famous pottery and ceramics manufacturer in the UK and there’s a museum and visitor centre here in Stoke-on-Trent. You’ll get insight into this world famous company and of course have the chance to buy some Wedgwood for yourself, or just eat and drink off Wedgwood products in the restaurant and tea room.

Trentham Gardens
Away from the pottery industry Stoke-on-Trent has plenty more to offer. Trentham Gardens is one of the city’s top tourist attractions and this is a formal Italianate garden. Once there was a grand house here and the gardens were the grounds to the house. The house was demolished but the gardens remained, along with a picturesque lake and the River Trent. More recently extra attractions have been added to Trentham Gardens including a monkey forest which is filled with 140 Barbary Macaque monkeys.

Alton Towers
The UK’s best known theme park and resort, Alton Towers, is only 16 kilometres away from Stoke-on-Trent so nice and close for a visit while you’re staying in the city. You could easily fill several days at Alton Towers, enjoying the amusements and thrill rides, plus there’s a giant indoor water park here too.

When Should You Visit?:

As with the majority of town and cities in the UK, Stoke-on-Trent has a temperate climate that keeps it mild throughout the year. Rainfall is fairly consistent, so pack an umbrella whatever time of year you come and bear in mind that the warmest months are July and August when the average highs are around 20C. Winters are wetter and cooler, so not really a great time for outdoor sightseeing.
