We went for a look round Denby pottery and we all had a wonderful time. The staff are really friendly and helpful couldn't have asked for more. We had a lovely tea break in the cafe and we all had different things to eat and drink and everything was delightful. I would recommend a trip here.

They offer 'second' standard dinner services, tea services and jug,plates and tea pots. All are almost identical to their 1 St productions. Excellently situated in beautiful Derbyshire country...

My wife and I took a party of senior citizens (38) to visit the Pottery and to have a Factory Tour. This proved very instructive and what an amazing experience to stlll have a British Firm making such excellent products. The other shops and Restaurant in the complex provided a very good days outing.

This pottery famous for its Denby Ware has an exciting and interesting shopping site. Whether it's pottery itself or fabulous glassware you are almost certain to find what you want. We love it and the onsite cafe is a pleasure to eat in. Excellent food in a wide range of choice and price. We just love visiting here

Lots of present ideas. James Martin party food servers, pessal and mortar and lots more. Beautiful vases, jewellery, baubles, something for every one. Stalls outside serving food and drinks. Small cafe which gets packed early on.

This attraction is well worth a visit. The factory tour is excellent, we were hosted by Lorraine who was very informative and clearly passionate about the pottery and the business. The tour was well organised with a great deal of emphasis on safety for staff in the factory and visitors. Visitors are able to get very close to the production... More
