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.
