We stayed in Jackfield last year and decided to revisit this museum. It is really worth a visit as it really is interesting. Make sure you buy one of the passports as it really is value for money

It's not the largest museum but I found it very interesting learning how the humble floor/wall tile is made and has developed. There are lots of different tiles on display all with a story. On Wednesday mornings at 11am they do factory tours as the...More
