World of Wedgwood

The Wedgwood Collection is one of the most important industrial collections in the world and a unique record of over 250 years of British ceramic production.

The Collection is a unique archive of British politics, society, science and art, containing over 80,000 works of art, ceramics, manuscripts and letters, pattern books and photographs. The factory was founded by the remarkable Josiah Wedgwood in the mid-18th century, who transformed the cottage craft of pottery into a grand manufacturing industry. The Wedgwood factory went on to share its founder’s passion for quality in both design and execution throughout the 19th and 20th centuries and continues today.

It is the finest collection of Wedgwood ceramics documenting production up to the present day, showcasing developments in taste and fashion over three centuries. The Wedgwood Museum opened in July 2015 as part of the World of Wedgwood, dedicated the Wedgwood brand, the history of its production, heritage and craftsmanship. The new visitor experience incorporates a museum visit and factory tour as well as the largest Wedgwood shop in the world.
