About Stoke On Trent
Stoke-on-Trent, often referred to as just Stoke, is a city in Staffordshire in England. The city lies approximately midway between Manchester and Birmingham. The Peak District lies to the east of the city. The city is regarded as the home of the pottery industry in England and as a result is also sometimes called the Potteries. The city's association with pottery began in the 17th century and has world famous companies such as Royal Doulton, Dudson Ltd, Spode, Wedgwood, Minton and Baker & Co. The city has also thrived in the past on the back of coal mining and steel production.
Visitors to Stoke-on-Trent can enjoy many attractions including the Potteries Museum and Art Gallery, the Eturia Industrial Museum and the Gladstone Pottery Museum. For visitors looking for a more thrill-seeking experience, the Alton Towers Resort is roughly 10 miles from the city and is in itself one of the United Kingdom's best known, and most visited, attractions.
The main shopping centre is the Potteries Shopping Centre in Hanley which includes department stores, many high street national chain stores and some independent stores.
Stoke-on-Trent railway station is a mainline station on the Stafford-Manchester Line (part of the West Coast Main Line between Manchester and London) and the Crewe-Derby Line.
Located in the West Midlands region of England, the city of Coventry is the region's second largest city after Birmingham. One of the main visitor attractions in the city is the Herbert Art Gallery and Museum whose permanent gallery spaces include sculpture, Old Masters paintings, art since 1900, local history and natural history. The Coventry Transport Museum is also another major attraction in the city. The Museum is free to enter and contains the largest collection of British-made road vehicles in the world. It also exhibits are the world speed record breaking cars, Thrust2 and ThrustSSC.
Roughly four miles from the city centre is the Lunt Fort which is a reconstructed Roman fort on its original site. Coventry was also one of the main centres of watchmaking during the 18th and 19th centuries and as the industry declined, the skilled workers were key to setting up the cycle trade. A group of local enthusiasts founded a museum in Spon Street.
