Where to view the Staffordshire Hoard collection

We are lucky enough to be able to visit Great Britain in May and
would liketo see a display of the Staffordshire Hoard. The Hoard is
on display at afew locations including Birmingham Museum, Stoke on
Trent and Lichfield Cathedral. Can anyone recommend the best place
to view the collection please? Thanks Craig McIntosh

Lichfield, Birmingham and Stoke are very close together, why not
take in all three. The Cathedral is well worth a visit with it’s
wonderful facade and strangely curved nave - Stoke has the wonderful
museums, and the Wedgewood Museum in Barlaston just outside of Stoke
has a great overview of the development of British ceramic design
through the lense of Josiah Wedgwood, and the Potteries Museum and
Art Gallery where part of the Hoard ishoused has a marvelous ceramic
collection, as you might expect. If you don’t want to drive it is
easy to get from one to another by train. Birmingham and Litchfield
easy walking from the stations, not sure about that inStoke.
