Set in a wonderful Victorian tile factory they have equipped offices and rooms in that period. There are many delightful tiles to illustrate the colours. Some of the tile work was so impressive. The museum does not seem to have much to hold the attention...More

If you're interested in the decorative arts, tile-making, or industrial history etc, then this museum is definitely worth a visit. It's really well presented, with lots of different galleries thoughtfully displayed in original factory buildings. It feels authoritative without being stuffy and there are some...More

Don’t rely on SatNav to take you to this museum, ours took us to a Wesleyan Church half a mile away. Not as interesting as the China Museum but it shows that one can make other items out of clay rather than china.

I found this small museum much more interesting than expected. One forgets how universally tiles were (and are) used. Highlights included the tile frieze rescued from a Ripon (North Yorkshire) butcher's and a mock-up of Covent Garden's Tube station. Plenty of stunning historical designs to...More
