Visitor Centre

Welcome to the Visitor Centre

Royal Crown Derby

Following government guidelines we have taken the decision to close our museum, on site shop and tea room and to cancel our factory tours to help limit the spread of coronavirus. However during this closed period you can still shop on line and we will be working behind the scenes to make sure our museum and factory tours come back stronger. To keep up to date with stories from the museum subscribe to the museum mailing list here, and to be the first to find out about special offers and new products from Royal Crown Derby sign up here.

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

We look forward to welcoming you back when we reopen.
