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.

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.

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
