Stoke-on-Trent, often referred to as The Potteries, is a city in Staffordshire, England, renowned for its rich heritage in ceramic and pottery production. With a legacy dating back to the 17th century, Stoke-on-Trent became a thriving hub for the pottery industry during the Industrial Revolution. The city comprises six towns, collectively known as The Six Towns, each playing a unique role in the region's ceramics legacy.

Numerous iconic pottery manufacturers, including Wedgwood, Royal Doulton, and Spode, originated in Stoke-on-Trent, making it a global centre for fine china and earthenware. Visitors can explore its museums and bottle kilns to delve into this industrial past offering a tangible connection to Stoke-on-Trent's manufacturing heritage.

Today, "The Potteries" remains a vibrant cultural center, with pottery shops, museums, and events celebrating the artistry and craftsmanship that define this city's enduring contribution to the world of ceramics.
