Stoke-on-Trent is a city in central England situated next to the M6 motorway, making it a straightforward commute to some of the UK’s major commercial hubs. Residents are also less than an hour away from the southern fringe of the Peak District, so there’s a great mix of both city and countryside. The metropolis of Stoke-on-Trent is made up of six separate towns and each of these have their own town hall – Hanley (the city centre), Burslem, Fenton, Longton, Stoke upon Trent, and Tunstall. These unique areas form an important part of British history, with a past that has been built on our nation’s famous pottery industry.
Not only is Stoke-on-Trent’s pottery past celebrated around the country, but the historical city has respectfully claimed the title of ‘World Capital of Ceramics’ and is recognised across the globe, attracting tourists and visitors from far and wide each year.
