The Museum now sits in glorious isolation near the cathedral close and river; the surrounding factory site being, typically for 21st Century industrial England, in the process of residential redevelopment.

It was a visual treat for us to tour the three floors of wonderful display. For the more interested, there was the audio tour and a film showing how the clay was transformed to beautifully finished porcelain,... More

I looked around front shop but did not go into the museum. There is small fee for museum. The porcelain china is beautiful and expensive - I think they used to serve royals. This will make good "rainy Day" activity.

Hadn't visited this museum for many years and what a treat it is for anyone who loves porcelain. My partner isn't a big fan of porcelain, but they thoroughly enjoyed it too. The audio guide is excellent, with wonderful insight from the incomparable Henry Sandon along the way, and wonderfully paced so that you can dip in and out of... More

It was almost overwhelming to see so much beautiful china displayed in one place. The audio guide, recorded by Antiques Roadshow experts, enhanced the experience.
