Had a few hours to kill whilst between trains on the Wensleydale Railway so we walked down to this and the neighbouring Chocolate factory. You walk through a side door and can see the teapot making process from fired pots to decorated to shop. They...More

Arrived on a Saturday bank holiday weekend. No charge to see the factory, which takes a couple of minutes. Only one employee working, hand painting tea pots, so not much to see. (Wasn't a hundred percent convinced that any manufacturing takes place there.) Enjoyed the...More

On arriving at the Teapottery we entered the main factory setting. It was lunchtime so unfortunately their wasn't anyone around. But we could see the teapots that were being produced and later painted. I remember visiting this place about 8 years ago and the standard...More

It has reopened under new management and a new name. It's being refitted so worth another look soon
