Middleport Pottery secures "excellent" TripAdvisor rating

Middleport Pottery has been given a top rating by travel review website TripAdvisor for its glowing visitor feedback.

The home of Burleigh pottery has just won a TripAdvisor 2015 Certificate of Excellence, which is given to attractions that receive the best feedback from visitors on the TripAdvisor website.

In announcing the award, the company said: "This achievement is a direct result of your consistently great reviews from TripAdvisor travellers."

The most recent review by a sightseer on Middleport Pottery's TripAdvisor page gives the site a five-star rating and states:

"We did a tour of this Victorian Pottery works a few weeks ago. It was fabulous. Very informative, interesting and an absolute joy. Albert our guide explained everything so well, and had lots of fascinating tales to tell. All the workers are so obviously proud of their work and their skills are amazing. We enjoyed it so much we may re visit soon. The cafe is well run and provides excellent refreshments. The shop was brilliant and attracts visitors from all continents. A visit is a must for anyone who wants to see traditional skills in their historic setting."

One of Britain’s last working Victorian potteries, Middleport Pottery has experienced rising visitor numbers since it reopened last July following a £9million restoration by The Prince's Regeneration Trust.

The building received 2,906 visitors in March, its highest-ever figure and a rise of almost 30 per cent from the month before.
