Famous for its pottery-making heritage and the UK's biggest theme park, Stoke-on-Trent has a great range of days out for the whole family.
For the thrill-seekers, Alton Towers Resort is a must-visit.

CBeebies Land is perfect for little explorers, while there is also a waterpark, crazy golf course and even a spa to enjoy.
There's more fun to be had at the Ninja Warrior UK Adventure, where all ages can take on the challenges and obstacles in hour-long sessions. Or if you fancy hitting the slopes, Stoke Ski Centre provides lessons, tubing experiences and even freestyle nights. For stag and hen parties, or a team-building activity, Xtreme Events Stoke has loads of fun and different options.
More relaxing family days out can also be enjoyed in Stoke-On-Trent. Famous for its pottery industry, no trip to Stoke is complete without a visit to the Potteries Museum and Art Gallery. But it's not all pots and ceramics. Visitors can also see the largest ever hoard of Anglo-Saxon gold, a World War II Spitfire and collections of artwork by the likes of Picasso and Degas.
The Emma Bridgewater Factory is perfect for those wanting to get a bit more hands-on. Take a tour of the Victorian factory for inspiration, before letting your creative juices flow in the Decorating Studio.
