Plan Your Visit
It's time for the traditional holiday for our hard working pottery workers in Stoke-on-Trent. There will therefore be no factory tours until Monday 13 July. Our shops, cafe, decorating studio and garden are open as usual. Our factory tours offer a fascinating glimpse behind the scenes at the Emma Bridgewater factory, giving you a genuine insight into the work and love that goes into producing each one of our beautiful pieces.
Sharing the Emma Bridgewater story with larger groups, clubs and organisation is one of our tour guides favourite things. To get the best out of this experience, we recommend groups of no more than 20. You can also combine your visit with morning coffee, lunch, afternoon tea and decorating studio packages. Call Zoe on 01782 201328 to talk through your tailor-made visit.

Take a classic Emma Bridgewater mug, plate or special piece of ware and make it your own. Our expert helpers will support you through the decorating process, offering tips and inspiration to create and paint a design you will treasure for generations. We will then glaze and fire your masterpiece so it will last a lifetime. The decorating studio is open every day, including weekends and most Bank Holidays. The studio fee is £2.95 per person plus the cost of your chosen pot (prices from £8 - download price list here).
