Leaving the hotel you travel to Barlaston and the famous World of Wedgwood factory. You are welcomed into the factory at 10:45hrs for a guided tour, experience a behind-the-scenes tour revealing where they design, create and craft Wedgwood's unique inventions, highlighting the craftsmanship and extraordinary skills of a talented team. There will be some free time to visit the V&A Wedgwood collection, the factory shop or enjoy refreshments in the cafe. Then to Stoke-on-Trent. In the town centre there are breweries, the largest shopping centre in Staffordshire and the Minster, a beautiful piece of architecture.
