My husbands favourite.

We had two very interesting hours in this pottery museum which was on two floors, history going back to the 18 century.

Meter parking right outside. Nice clean toilets. And then of course there is the Worcester china. Plus we were lucky that there was an artist there painting pieces and talking us through the process etc. Lovely smell of aniseed oil too.

There are beautiful artefacts on display, unfortunately, the skill required to produce them has moved offshore to cheaper labour markets. I am not sure whether this is just a lesson in the cycle of industrial economics that we should accept, or lament. Last year we visited for the first time and were struck by the technical level of the artistry... More

What stunning items on display! Lots of history to see and listen to on the recorded guide. Some magnificent pieces hard to believe they are porcelain/china. Lovely staff on entry - very welcoming.

If you like exquisite porcelain you must visit this museum. We were lucky to meet Avril who used to make porcelain flower decorations demonstrating techniques and also a group of conservators renovating the original design drawings. As well as hundreds of examples of fine bone china porcelain. As well as a good gift shop!

A breath taking collection of Worcester best bone China, the staff are very helpful, the hand painted China the best that I have ever seen. You are only 100 yds from Worcester Cathedral

We were very unlucky with timing of our visit to the Royal Worcester museum, arriving just as the BBC were about to film Philip Serrell visiting the museum as part of the tv show Antique Road Trip. We were therefore unable to go into the museum itself. However what a treat we had chatting with the ladies in the museum... More

A good overview of pottery history as royal Worcester led the way. The only sad thing is that the company was taken over by foreigners and no longer appear to be producing pottery
