Affectionately known as ‘The Potteries’, the historic city of Stoke-on-Trent is based in the heart of Staffordshire. With its rich industrial heritage – and its many pottery factories - the city has claimed the title of ‘World Capital of Ceramics’. Easy access to East Midlands Airport and the M6 means Stoke-on-Trent is very accessible, and with its many museums and visitor centres – not to mention close proximity to Alton Towers Theme Park – there’s plenty to keep the whole family entertained. And despite its industrial roots, Stoke-on-Trent is one of the UK’s greenest cities, boasting almost 1,500 hectares of parkland and open spaces.
With a number of hotels based in and around Stoke-on-Trent, you can choose to be based in the heart of the city or further afield in places like Crewe or Stafford. You can even reach the city from our Buxton hotel, situated in the beautiful Peak District.
