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.

A nice walking area but take a flask, a few shops lots to see and do try walking along the old rail way right up to the power station its a long walk but the dogs will love it if you take one.

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

We visited on our family annual pass. It was a very nice place, lots of different tiles, information very good. The little cafe was reasonably priced. A nice afternoon out.

We found this very interesting - the explanations of how different tiles were made, and the display of beautiful tiles, however, I'm not sure folk with younger children would be as interested. However as it is part of the museums passport package it is certainly worth a visit. I loved it!
