Staffordshire is a lush county right in the heart of England with moorlands in the north and plenty of rolling countryside to enjoy. There are busy industrial cities like Stoke-on-Trent too. Here are our reviews of tourist attractions in Staffordshire and remember, all our attraction reviews are based on personal visits:
- Lichfield Cathedral, Staffordshire
Lichfield Cathedral in Staffordshire, England stands in an elevated location and dominates the surrounding city. It is an active place of worship which balances well the needs of a modern congregation whilst embracing the history of the surrounding building.
- St George’s Park, Staffordshire
St George’s Park is the English Football Association’s training ground, located in the Staffordshire countryside near to Burton upon Trent. It was officially opened by the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge in 2012 and was completed after years of delays at a cost of over £100 million.
- Shugborough Hall, Staffordshire
Shugborough Hall in Staffordshire is an English stately home with a difference. It’s a lovely place to look around, but for many it’s also a place to go to learn about its last significant resident, Lord Lichfield. Patrick Anson was the 5th Earl of Lichfield, relative of the Queen, world famous photographer and mover and shaker in the 60’s and 70’s and this was his ancestral home.
- Tutbury Castle, Staffordshire
Tutbury Castle sits on top of a hill in rural Staffordshire, not far from the town of Burton upon Trent. The castle was first recorded in 1071 and it’s perhaps most well known for being one of the prisons that held Mary Queen of Scots. She was held here on 4 separate occasions in fact and it was here that she became involved in the plot that ultimately led to her execution.
