This museum was very well designed and there was something interesting around every corner. What could have been quite dull was brought to life by imaginative settings and a fascinating selection of tiles through the ages. I was a bit 'tiled out' by the last part but the café and shop revived me and the whole outside area showed the... More

Very interesting if you love tiles like I do. There are so many different tiles here but some lovely Arts & Crafts and Art Nouveau tiles all lovely. Interesting history as we found out that it was the biggest tile manufacturer in the world at one time. We enjoyed this visit very much.

Spent a wet afternoon here with my 9 and 12 year olds, the tile decorating workshop was great fun and it was good to learn the techniques used. Big thanks to the girls who run it and who were very patient with everyone 😊

Loved the tile museum, at firstt thought it might be a bit dull, just some examples of tiles but seeing the processes and the amazing artwork soon changed my mind. The quality of the work is fantastic and the 'rooms' showing examples of where tiles would have been used were really good.

Very good exhibition of tiles and the local areas history. The cafe had good food. I really enjoyed my bacon sandwich. If you pay to go in you are able to go again whenever you like for a year! There are workshops for children to decorate their own tiles.

Some very intricate tiles here. Watch tile making/decorating. I loved the tiles that depicted cartoon type characters.

Love this place! I have taken my children and grandchildren and we have all loved it. In the school holidays we have decorated tiles, which is great fun and rewarding. The museum is interesting for all ages.

I have to be honest, i was alittle nervous about visiting the tile museum because i thought it would be alittle boring... but i was wrong. The work and craftsmanship that goes into making just one tile is amazing! The displays are extensive and fascinating and really make you look at tiles in a whole new light. We visited on... More

An interesting experience. We took the Wednesday morning tour and were shown how the tiles were made and the history of the factory. The museum has a brilliant selection of tiles and how they were used through the centuries.
