New homes in Stoke-on-Trent

New homes in Stoke-on-Trent

From country parks to museums, theme parks and sports facilities, there’s plenty for the whole family to enjoy in Stoke-on-Trent. If you’re looking to move to a large, vibrant town with brilliant transport connections and lots of employment opportunities, a new home in Stoke-on-Trent could be the right choice for you.

A quick history

Stoke-on-Trent developed around a Roman road linking Chesterton and Derby, but archaeological digs have discovered ancient pottery in the local area dating back to around 2,000 BC.

Stoke is known as ‘The Potteries’ thanks to its successful pottery industry, especially as local factories experimented with Chinese techniques to create bone china in the 17th century. The industry flourished from the mid 18th century onwards when the now-famous Wedgwood factory was first built. Thanks to growing demand, by the end of the 19th century there were more than 200 factories in the local area.

In the mid-1900s, there were a number of collieries around Stoke-on-Trent. The last local coal mine, the Trentham Superpit, closed in 1994, and since then the town has become a business hub across a wide range of industries.

Business and industry

Major employers in Stoke-on-Trent include Bet365 Group, tyre manufacturers Michelin, National Veterinary Services, Goodwin, Meyer Timber and Stoke City Football Club. Bentley is based nearby in Crewe, while Stafford is home to Alstom UK, Bostik and Cory Environmental.

Things to do in the area

Stoke-on-Trent is a cultural place, with lots to explore in the town centre and beyond. Whether you’re discovering the industrial past at the Potteries Museum and Art Gallery, browsing the exhibits at the Etruria Industrial Museum or admiring the architecture of Stoke Minster, there are lots of historic sites to keep the whole family entertained.

If you’re a big sports fan, there’s lots to keep you entertained in the town, whether you’re cheering on Stoke City F.C. at the bet365 Stadium, scaling the walls at Kilnworx Climbing Centre, or perfecting your technique at Stoke Ski Centre.

For families moving to the town, there are lots of green spaces for the kids to enjoy including Berryhill Fields, Fenton Park and Park Hall Country Park. The Peak District National Park is only a short drive away, while Alton Towers theme park is the perfect place for adrenaline-fuelled fun.

Other attractions in and near to Stoke include the New Vic Theatre, Trentham Gardens and Monkey Forest, and Water World.

Travel and commuting

Stoke-on-Trent has good transport connections to nearby towns and cities, with the M6 only a short drive away and the local train station providing regular services to Birmingham, London, Manchester and beyond. 

Manchester is a 45-minute train journey away from Stoke or one hour by car, while Birmingham can be reached in 45 minutes by both car and train. Derby is a 40-minute drive or 50-minute train ride from Stoke.

If you’re travelling to London, the car journey takes two hours 45 minutes depending on traffic, while the train is much quicker with a journey time of one hour 35 minutes to reach London Euston. When it’s time for a much-needed holiday, Manchester Airport is a 40-minute drive away.
