This article is about the city.
For the highway authority based around the city, see Stoke-on-Trent Council
.

Stoke-on-Trent is well-known as the Potteries. It is a federal authority formed by the union of six previously independent small towns in 1910 and given city status in 1925. Following signs to the City Centre will take you to Hanley, although the civic offices are in the town of Stoke.

Given that Stoke-on-Trent is a federation of several unimportant places, it has no definite centre: following signs to Stoke-on-Trent could lead you to anywhere in the city and some roads passing through the city are not signed to it. Mileposts existing since before federation will point to whichever of the component towns the road goes to.

The focal point for roads in the region is the neighbouring town of Newcastle-under-Lyme.
