Welcome to Stoke

Located in North Staffordshire midway between Birmingham and Manchester, Stoke is a vibrant and growing city with excellent transport links and lots of great employment opportunities nearby.

A quick history

Stoke is a pottery town, with the industry dating back to the 17th century. Josiah Wedgwood established his now-famous earthenware business in the mid 1700s, with pottery production eventually making Stoke one of the leading towns during industrialisation. The Grand Trunk Canal opened in 1777, and was used for transportation between Stoke and the ports of Liverpool and Hull. At one time, thousands of bottle kilns were located in Stoke, with only 46 remaining today as listed buildings. 

In the 1850s, smaller towns started to be merged, and eventually Stoke-on-Trent became a county borough in 1910, and was named a city in 1925. 

Business and industry

Stoke’s industry is largely centred around pottery, with modern day employers including Wedgwood, the Royal Doulton Company, Portmeirion and Emma Bridgwater. Michelin Tyres have their UK head office in Stoke, while other major local employers include the City Council, Royal Stoke University Hospital, bet365 and Stoke City FC. There are also warehouses for Sainsbury's and The Co-operative Pharmacy nearby, as well as a Vodafone call centre at Festival Park.

The city is also very green, with outdoor spaces including Turnhurst Jubilee Wood, Berryhill Fields, Fenton Park and Park Hall Country Park.

There are a number of shopping areas in Stoke, including intu Potteries and Trentham Shopping Village, while families will enjoy a day out at Alton Towers theme park, Monkey Forest and the Peak District National Park.
