This cultural tour examines the extraordinary cultural and social change as well as technical innovation and entrepreneurship that occurred in Staffordshire during the Industrial Revolution:
• Discover the unique assembly of architecture, museums and galleries of Staffordshire that bear testament to the entrepreneurship of the Industrial Revolution.
• Highlights include two UNESCO World Heritage sites: the world’s oldest iron bridge, and the mills and workers’ housing of the Derwent Valley, which were to become the model for factories throughout the world in subsequent centuries.
• Study the particularly rich history of the ceramics industry prevalent in the area with visits to Gladstone Pottery Museum and Coalport China Museum.
