We thoroughly enjoyed the factory tour, I think even Denby will agree that their pottery is not cheap, but having seen it made you realise the care and labour involved a very worthwhile thing to do especially on a wet day which are all too...More

This is more than a well stocked factory outlet; we went on the 'craftroom experience' tour and very much enjoyed it - I suspect the Factory Tour is even better (not offered the Saturday we were there but we may well return for it).

Denby pottery is in a pleasant setting, plenty of parking, excellent shops and cafe-restaurant. Pottery tour and factory shop well worth visiting. Small children's playground and 'summer holiday Sandy beach area".

Hi, there is a full range of their different sets on display. There were some offers when we visited and also a bargain corner, but nothing was really cheap, but well worth a look.
