Royal Delft - Koninklijke Porceleyne Fles Reviews
We enjoyed our visit to the Emma Bridgewater factory in Stoke-on-Trent and this experience was just as good. You walk around the factory (helped by an audio guide) observing crafts-people at work... more »
Cute presentations on basic pottery for learners in school or inexperienced in pottery. Good historical collection too! Demonstrations very professional, and others answered questions for more... more »
Our visit to the Royal Delft factory was fun and informative. I think the factory does a good job of balancing giving you details you need to understand their processes with the need to be efficient with your time. This company has something like a 400 or 500 year history and it is clear that they make great products. It was nice to watch them in action doing real work. They also had quite a nice little museum. We did not take advantage of their little restaurant so I cannot comment on that.
What a beautiful part of the town. The tour was so informative and fascinating. We learned a lot about Delft. During the tour you watch them work up close. Could not believe we were in amongst everything on the factory floor! Enjoyed a lovely lunch in the courtyard and then a wander through⁰ the shop. Was pleasantly surprised that the shop contained Royal Delft for every budget so able to bring a little Dutch home. Thoroughly recommend to everyone and transport was so easy too!
