Visited Denby pottery for the day to do some shopping and learn about the pottery made there. Lots of choice to either buy the pottery at top quality or if you are looking for a bargain do go downstairs to the seconds department. You would be hard pushed to spot the imperfection and at a fraction of the cost of... More

We visited the Denby Factory Centre again yesterday, the latest in a number of visits over the last few years. We have a large collection of Denby tableware, so we are always looking for a bargain to add to the collection. We parked up in the large on-site car park, then headed in to the excellent cookery shop, which has... More

Friendly staff, lots of variety in factory shop and 'non' factory shop. With 5 coaches in while I was there, it was a pity they still closed at 5pm as it felt a bit rushed. However I would think the staff were exhausted as the place was packed out. Other shops to see as well and a small craft market.

Denby pottery is always a popular destination in our famly. We visited on Sunday when there was a marquee hosting a craft and gift fair. The Emporium is well worth a visit with displays of Denby through the ages including some fascinating Apprentice pieces. The cookshop is well stocked and there are regular cookery demonstrations. Lovely restaurant on site with... More

If you like quality, then this place is well worth a visit. There are plenty of choices of classic Denby products, both at full and seconds prices and the layout in splendidly designed buildings is most attractive. Then there is another store selling 3rd party products, such as cooking and gardening items, with a great range of choice and all... More

We visited here using tickets obtained through Tesco Vouchers so it was quite a cheap day out. The factory tour was quite interesting and the guide called Karen was very pleasant and the lady doing the plate painting was very good. My friend and I then had a good time painting a plate, an activity that would suit kids but... More
