Fun day out in Stafford

by Geri Stoke, Jul 2018

Staffordshire is a fab place to take the kids out! With its busy Alton towers, Water world, endless outdoor attractions and bespoke shops. Its a sure fun way of entertaining the kids in the holidays!

Stafford Castle is an amazing place to take your kids with activities for all ages –

The enthusiastic visitor centre here really brings Stafford Castle to life! The interior is designed to encourage a ‘hands-on’ approach to history; the emphasis is most definitely on information with fun and exploration thrown in! Interactive elements include coin minting, brass rubbing and getting to grips with arms, armour and period dress up.

You can patrol over 26 acres in knightly (or queenly!) fashion and visit the keep, inner bailey, outer bailey, atmospheric woodland and fragrant herb garden plus of course the visitor centre with car park. The herb garden has a handy guide as to what the various plants were used for back in the day which is pretty interesting.

An exciting events schedule spread throughout the year includes the annual Stafford Festival Shakespeare production during summer, school and group tours and occasional themed tours, talks and workshops which are well worth watching out for. And the Castle Shop has a wide range of souvenirs to suit all pockets. It features a range of castle themed children’s books and toys and well as being your warm weather stop for ice creams and soft drinks.
