Details

New World of Wedgwood Visitor Experience Opening in 2015.

There is a major redevelopment project underway at the Wedgwood Estate as we transform our site and create an upgraded manufacturing facility, company offices and new world class visitor experience called the World of Wedgwood.

As a result, we are closing the site to customers from 24th December 2014 through until early April 2015.

The new World of Wedgwood will offer a reinvented interactive factory tour, inspiring flagship store, stylish Wedgwood tearooms, and a restaurant championing locally sourced produce. All of these elements will be fully integrated with the world class Wedgwood Museum. In addition there will be a children’s play area, woodland walks and a programme of activities and events on offer.

Visit www.wedgwoodvisitorcentre.com for further details and opening times.
