Mini guide to Stafford

     

Stafford is centrally located in Staffordshire, on the edge of the Cannock Chase, an area of outstanding natural beauty, amid the rolling countryside, nature reserves and heritage attractions. The breathtaking Shugborough estate, Izaak Walton's Cottage, and Wedgwood factory and visitor's centre, are just a few of the outstanding attractions near Stafford.

Stafford is dominated by the 900 year old Stafford Castle, which was originally built by William the Conqueror. Enjoy the stunning views, the herb garden and various displays in the castle. The castle also hosts a range of venues throughout the year, such as historical re-enactments and productions of Shakespeare plays. Also dominant in the town centre are the medieval churches of St. Chad and St. Mary's.

Historically, the railroad has played a major role in this region of England and Stafford has some great attractions for railroad enthusiasts. The Amerton Railway, within Amerton Working Farm, is a 2 foot gauge line that runs through the Staffordshire countryside. The farm also showcases many other trains and locomotives and even operates a steam train on some days. The Chasewater Railway, in Chasewater Country Park, operates vintage steam and diesel passenger trains from Brownhills West and its a great way to experience first-hand, the trains of old.

For those travelling with children, you can't miss a day out at Alton Towers, the largest amusement park in the UK, with over 2.7 million visitors a year! The top five rides are considered to be: the Black Hole, Nemesis, Oblivion, Ripsaw and the Corkscrew. However, the park not only offers rides, but boasts 200 acres of landscaped gardens, originally created by the 15th Earl of Shrewsbury.

The closest airport is Birmingham International Airport, however, there are three other airports within easy reach of Stafford: Manchester, Liverpool, and East Midlands. Long-distance express coaches and trains also service Stafford, with connections to most major cities in England.
