Days out in Staffordshire

Theme parks are your thing? Alton Towers, Drayton Manor Park and Waterworld are some of Britain’s best. Kids also love Peak Wildlife Park for penguins and meerkats and the pigs and cows at the National Forest Adventure Farm.

What about places with more humans than animals or characters? Pick up pottery at Stoke-on-Trent, old time tales at Tamworth Castle or peace of mind at the National Memorial Arboretum.

At McArthur Glen Designer Outlet in Cannock, you’ll find cheap designer brands (the real deal – no Tony Hilfinger). And Trentham Gardens is a great place to relax – originally designed by Capability Brown and recently restored.

Staffordshire – terrific for theme parks and a lot more besides.
