Nestled beside the picturesque moorlands of North Staffordshire, Stoke-On-Trent has long been a destination for visitors attracted to the town both for business and pleasure. It’s a fantastic and understated location for events – particularly corporate conferences, team-building days and weddings. It’s famous for its pottery and ceramics – home to the world-renowned Wedgwood, Spode and Middleport factories. This rich heritage is celebrated by The Gladstone Pottery Museum, World of Wedgwood and The Potteries Museum and Art Gallery. Stoke-On-Trent points of interest include its historic railway station and minster.
Nearby attractions are also abundant – The Trentham Estate boasts a gorgeous Italianate garden and fun-packed Monkey Forest complete with zip trail for little and big kids alike. A picturesque network of canals leads to the pretty Froghall Wharf via the Heritage Canal Trail. Situated deep within the Staffordshire countryside and just a stone’s throw from Stoke-On-Trent itself, Alton Towers is perhaps one of the most famous local attractions – with over thirty rides on offer for adrenalin junkies and thrill seekers of all ages. Eating options in the town include independent and big-name chains – so there’s something for everyone.
Stoke-On-Trent hotels are also varied and numerous – with plenty of options available from affordable comfort to high-end luxury. You can stay right in the centre or in the sticks for a more rural experience. For the avid shopper the Octagon Retail Park sits on the outskirts of town with the main pedestrianised centre between Quadrant and Town Roads is given over to a great selection of national chains and local shops.
