The village of Jackfield was once the world centre of the tile industry, and Jackfield Tile Museum set in an immense Victorian factory, celebrates the decorative tiles that once graced the Empire. Room after room is filled with beautiful displays and room settings such as the pub, the tube station and the butchers. On certain days, you can watch staff from the Craven Dunnill Company manufacture tiles or even create your own at regularly held workshops. At the adjacent 'Fusion' see contemporary Designers and Makers in action. You can also hire a bike from here to explore the area the 'green' way. The entire collection of this museum is a Designated Collection of national importance.
