Visitor Centre

Welcome to the Visitor Centre

Royal Crown Derby

The factory tour, museum, shop and tearooms are all currently closed. However, we are pleased to announce we will be reopening the museum on September 1st

The ground floor exhibition will be refreshed and will be free to all visitors. Those wishing to see our full collections and get a glimpse of the amazing Royal Crown Derby archives can book a Premium Tour for £10 per person including a £2 voluntary donation. It is likely that Premium Tours will initially be offered to families or friends already in social contact with each other. However as the situation evolves we will keep you up to date.

Don’t forget that whilst we remain closed you can still shop on line and we will be working behind the scenes to make sure our museum comes back stronger. To keep up to date with stories from the museum, subscribe to the museum mailing list here.

You can also keep up to date with the museum on Facebook where we will post regular updates from behind the scenes.
