The Royal Crown Derby Porcelain Company can trace its history back 250 years to 1750 and over the years has achieved a world-wide reputation for beauty, quality and excellence. Celebrated and collected by aristocracy and royalty throughout the ages, the china today is still made using many of the skills and techniques that have been handed down through the generations.

From tableware that graces the finest country houses in England, to the delightful and increasingly collectable paperweights, every piece of Royal Crown Derby is the accumulation of many years of craftsmanship and experience.

The Royal Crown Derby Visitor Centre includes a guided working factory tour and a visit to the museum, a factory shop and The Duesbury Coffee shop available for light lunches.

Booking for tours is essential on 01332 712833.
