Christmas Arrives At The World of Wedgwood

A visit to the World of Wedgwood this December will be a treat for families, with some festive activities that have been created to provide the perfect build up to the excitement of Christmas.

Children will be able to send a special message to Father Christmas by making teacup and teapot decorations to create their very own Snow Crystal Christmas Wish. These will then be hung on the World of Wedgwood’s magical indoor willow tree ready for Father Christmas’s elves to collect.

In addition there will be a special 12 Clays of Christmas treasure trail in the award-winning Wedgwood Museum, which will see little ones challenged to hunt out carefully hidden Christmas themed items within its extensive collections.

Both activities will be available every weekend in the run up to Christmas – 5th and 6th, 12 and 13th and 19th and 20th December. The Christmas Wish Tree will be located in the indoor playroom within the World of Wedgwood’s Dining Hall and there is no charge for leaving wishes for collection by the elves. Admission prices to the Wedgwood Museum will apply.

If the weather is fine families are also invited to explore the 240 acres of the Wedgwood Estate’s stunning landscaped grounds for free, with an array of country walks to choose from. The pottery-themed outdoor play area features giant installations including a teapot and Portland Vase, whilst the Fairyland Lustre-themed indoor play area located in the Dining Hall will appeal to children of all ages.

Entry to the Wedgwood Museum starts at £7 for adults with family tickets also available.

Opening times are: Monday to Friday 10am – 5pm, Saturday and Sunday 10am – 4pm
