Mini guide to Tamworth


A historic town located in the county of Staffordshire, Tamworth is a successful industrial city known for its production of paper, clothing, brick and tiles as well as for having a thriving engineering industry. In recent years Tamworth has become popular among thrill seekers attracted by its indoor ski slope known as the Snowdome.

Tamworth Castle is one of the most historic sites in the area and is always high on the agenda of visitors to the town. This small castle located next to the River Tame is of Norman origin and dates from the 11th century. Once home to the Marmion family, it is now considered one of the best preserved castles of its kind in the UK.

The Snowdome is the town's greatest visitor attraction and draws visitors from across the country to sample its 560-foot slope that boasts a covering of real snow as opposed to an artificial dry slope surface. Skiers and snowboarders alike can enjoy the slippery delights of the dome and there are lessons available for complete beginners on the bunny run.

Aside from a plethora of traditional British eateries, Tamworth has many international dining options including Greek, Indian, Chinese, French and Italian venues. Meanwhile for shopping, the High street has many big name stores as well as a variety of independent retailers. Tamworth's evening scene is a little staid in comparison with other areas, although there is a reasonable choice of pubs and bars, while a cinema complex caters for those who enjoy a night at the movies.

If you feel like a day out from Tamworth then try Walsall in the Midlands. Within reasonable driving distance, Walsall's Memorial Gardens and Arboretum is one of its key attractions for its huge display of illuminations which are second in size only to Blackpool. Other attractions include the Walsall Leather Museum and the Art Gallery.

Drivers destined for Tamworth should exit at junction 10 on the M42 motorway, while Tamworth is also accessible by rail and has its own railway station with two lines connecting it to a variety of UK destinations. Birmingham International Airport provides the nearest air connection.
