The Royal Porcelain Works, originally founded by Robert Chamberlain in Severn Street and has been redeveloped by the Bransford Trust to create a new centre for the arts in Worcester.

The Museum of Royal Worcester (formerly Worcester Porcelain Museum and Dyson Perrins Museum) is a ceramics museum located in the Royal Worcester porcelain factory's former site in Worcester, England.

The Museum of Royal Worcester houses the world’s largest collection of Worcester porcelain. The collections date back to 1751 and the Victorian gallery, the ceramic collections, archives and records of factory production, form the primary resource for the study of Worcester porcelain and its history.

It is a vibrant new cultural development in the heart of historic Worcester that features arts and crafts, a brand-new exhibition space, a fabulous new eatery and the world-renowned Museum of Royal Worcester.  Located at Worcester’s famous Royal Porcelain Works, this exciting new development is a hub of activity and events for members of the local community as well as visitors to Worcester.

The re-development of the Porcelain Works seeks to raise the profile of the fantastic level of artistry and craftsmanship that exists locally, helping ensure these skills remain relevant to future generations and that traditions for which the city of Worcester is renowned live on.

Piston Distillery & Gin School

Piston Distillery was founded in 2018 by Nick Weatherall.

In love with the idea of creating his own spirits and fascinated by a trip to a gin school in the summer of 2017, Nick felt compelled to find a flavour he felt the gin world was lacking. So he started by building a distillery, re-tasking part of the old Royal Worcester Porcelain Works. 

Nick and his team have brought new life to this abandoned and near derelict historic site – today the Piston Distillery is vibrant and busy with the sounds and smells of twenty-first century, hand-crafted industry as our signature Piston Gin is distilled.
