Nicknamed ‘The Potteries,’ Stoke on Trent is in fact the World Capital of Ceramics. It is home to a number of award-winning museums, factory tours, and workshops, where you can have a go at making your own. It would be a shame to leave the home of pottery without your own pottery souvenir!
For those that have energy to burn, Stoke on Trent has everything your heart may desire. A selection of indoor pools with chutes and rapids, Europe’s largest skate plaza, wall climbing, and golf centres are just a few of the many activities and attractions that can be found in Stoke.
The award-winning Trentham Estate is just a 10 minute drive from the centre of Stoke and is one of England’s great garden estates. Visitors can enjoy a stroll around the Italian gardens, go sailing on the lake, or play hide and seek in the maze.
The gardens are also home to the more unusual attraction of Trentham Monkey Forest where you can get up close and personal to the monkeys that swing freely through the trees. The high ropes adventure course, Aerial Extreme, will make a monkey out of you too!
Alton Towers, the UK’s leading theme park is just a stone’s throw from Stoke on Trent and offers a fun-filled day out. Make the short 30 minute drive and get stuck into the action! With an unrivalled selection of theme park rides and attractions there’s something to keep everyone entertained, and the fun only stops when it’s time to go home.
