Only Portmeirion, Wedgwood, Dudson and Emma Bridgewater continue to manufacture pottery in the city, and the factory shops can offer heavy discounts on what will be called "second quality" goods, that often have only very minor defects that are frequently very difficult to tell from the main shop goods. Otherwise, shopping is not something that one would come to Stoke-on-Trent for. The city centre of Hanley offers nothing that cannot be found elsewhere. However it still offers a wide range of stores which would fulfill the needs of any traveller with needs of supplies. Most pottery factory shops will offer a postal delivery service, so that one does not have to carry fragile or heavy items onto a plane when returning home.

Many of them are chain pubs, with The Reginald Mitchell (JD Wetherspoon), Walkabout, Chicago Rock Café and Reflex all represented and popular with the locals at weekends. There do remain some traditional pubs in the centre, all of which have been somewhat battered over the years by the chain venues. Most people wanting to stay out for the night will finish their evenings in either Liquid (around £5 entry), which features mainstream music or, the slightly further away Underground which specialises in rock indie music and sometimes has live acts. This costs £2 to enter on a Monday, and four quid on a Saturday. Cans of Red Stripe lager will set you back around three pounds. Sleep The George Hotel, located in Burslem, is a fine hotel in an area not known for its accommodation options. The Stoke-on-Trent Moat House is a four-star hotel on Festival Park, part of which was originally the mansion of Josiah Wedgwood. The North Stafford Hotel is directly opposite the railway station, which is adequate and conveniently-located for sleeping arrangements. Otherwise, there are a range of hotels available in the surrounding countryside, including options at Alton Towers. Stay safe Stoke-on-Trent as a whole is a safe city.
