Factory Shop Information

Burleigh Factory Shop gives our customers a unique opportunity to visit the heart of English ceramic manufacturing in Stoke-on-Trent. Housed in part of our working "Middleport Pottery," this historic site is home to the largest range of Burleighware in the world. New stock is carried over from our warehouses every couple of days, making sure there is always something different and interesting to find.

Our factory is currently undergoing major conservation work over the next couple of years, this is part of the project headed by the Princes Regeneration trust which will ensure Burleigh always has a home at Middleport pottery. Our Factory Shop will be open as usual throughout this period, and we will ensure customers still get to enjoy a visit to Burleigh. Parking facilities have moved to the car park across from our factory entrance and visitors are welcome to enter on foot though our factory archway, our old car park will be out of action for a while. As the whole project moves forwards we will keep customers updated on any major changes, and we aim to offer factory tours as often as possible ensuring everyone gets a chance to see all the changes going on at Middleport. Eventually all this investment and hard work will pay off and we will have a factory with even more to see and do.

An array of all Burleigh colourways and patterns both current and discontinued are always available and ever changing. We are famous for our large ranges of traditional blue and white patterns, such as bold Calico, and classical Asiatic Pheasant, a pattern in constant production by us since 1862. Also, we have many other delicate English Chintz patterns in mid and powder blues. Our stock extends to our patterns done in other colourways, such as red, pink, black and plum. We also have a contemporary and colourful pattern called Rosie's Hens, and a good stock of plain natural whiteware.

Our Factory Shop can offer the visitor everything from a fantastic seconds bargain, to the very latest ideas from our production team in the form of trial pieces. Often items available in the shop are exclusive to the shop, Edwardian shaped Jugs sit alongside elegant tureens and comports of the Victorian dinner table.

A warm coal fire and free coffee tea and biscuits, with polite friendly and efficient service for everyone, it is little wonder that customers come from all around the world, as well as from just around the corner! Often returning on a regular basis always sure of the warmest welcome.
