This place is great. As soon as you walk through the door you are presented with a beautiful tile peacock motif on the floor. You enter into the gift shop and a small cafe. Not a huge range of food on offer but enough to keep you going. The shop has a large selection of picture tiles for sale. They... More

One of the best of the attractions in the area. Colourful and imaginative tiles and displays. Working factory, so no photos inside that part. The shop will tempt you to part with your hard earned cash, so beware. Again, an attraction suited to adults as well as children, and we followed this with Whitewick Manor about 30 minutes away that... More

Popped down at the weekend with younger members of the family only to discover that the tile workshops only run on a Tuesday once the schools go back! What sort of nonsense is that! If the schools have gone back then children are not able available on a Tuesday only at weekends! Very disappointing. It is no good then moaning... More

A really interesting museum. Really enjoyed our visit. Disappointed that some areas were not open at the weekend, which seemed odd.

I didn't expect to be impressed but I most certainly was. Very well laid out and the staff were very informative

Take a step back into olden days, look at the wonderful designs and displays, see how they were made and also current bespoke tiles being handcrafted. The renovated buildings being put to good use is excellent and coupled with the new exhibits of glass making and other shops, it's another worthwhile visit,

Another museum that I had reservations about visiting, but it turned out to be quite interesting. A huge number of tiles on display that would inspire anyone interested in art/design. The small church opposite the museum (located in Church Road) is well worth a visit if you are lucky enough to find it open.

Lots to see at this place - go on a Wednesday when there are tours of the factory too (but good at any time). You get to see a lot of the site and excellent displays.

This was much better than expected. In addition to a big collection of various tiles you also get to walk through some of the production line and even better I found the Robert Harrop factory which makes the Camberwick Green Figurines. Check out the Covent Garden tiling and the Bathroom tiles in particular. I not sure that I would pay... More
