Top 100 Attractions Review

When you talk about great potteries, Stoke-on-Trent, Portmeirion & Belleek instantly spring too mind, you can be forgiven for thinking of those famous potteries first. But then there are the smaller potteries that are dotted around our fine land, potteries like Oxfordshire's Aston Pottery for instance. I had been recommended this pottery & visitor centre by another attraction, I have too say that their work really is quite remarkable. Tours and demonstrations at Aston Pottery are only bookable in advance, but nevertheless the experience is one that will stick in your memory for a long time. Another thing that has too be mentioned are the beautiful gardens at Aston, which were incidentally opened by David Cameron (Prime Minister) and an awful lot of time and investment has gone into these gardens and they are really quite beautiful. A massive Top 100 Attractions thumbs up for this attraction.

Stop in at our Country Café for delicious home-baked cakes, cookies and scones. For those desiring a little more, we also offer hot and cold lunches, including: flans, paninis, salads, soups, giant sausage rolls and daily specials. On top of all this we sell large-filled baps and jacket potatoes with a bounty of fillings to decide from.

If you are interested in learning about the craft of pottery making we offer group tours and demonstrations throughout most of the year, or for those who want to get more hands-on you can decorate you own pottery every Saturday (bookings in advance).

Our Gardens offer a spectacular array of plants, flowers, bees and butterflies from mid-April through to September.
