At the Jackfield Tile Museum there are tiles everywhere! The Victorians were on a mission to not only make them, but also to use them.

The charming Victorian gas-lit galleries and period room settings give you a superb view of how these highly decorative tiles were made and sold to the Victorian gentry here in Jackfield. You'll walk through a country church, shop and tube station and see where some of these tiles ended up.
