Pocket Guide: Stafford

Stafford, the county town of Staffordshire, lies around 24 miles to the north-west of Birmingham, 16 miles north of Wolverhampton and 18 miles south of Stoke-on-Trent. There has been a settlement here since around 700AD.

Getting There

Stafford railway station is on the West Coast Main Line, which connects it to Liverpool and London (Euston). CrossCounty trains run to Manchester Piccadilly and Stoke-on-Trent, and there are now also regular trains into Birmingham New Street. By road, Stafford is easily accessed from junctions 13 and 14 of the M6, and the A34 links it to Stoke-on-Trent, Cannock and the rest of the West Midlands.

Attractions

For a relatively small town, Stafford boasts many attractions and activities. The main shopping area is the Guildhall Shopping Centre which contains more than 40 shops including high street names and local, independent traders. There is also a busy and colourful market every Tuesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday.

'Must sees' in Stafford include the 200 year old Broad Eye Windmill, Ancient High House (an interactive museum within a 400 year old timber framed town house), the 12th Century St. Chad's Church and the excellent Shire Hall Art Gallery.

Activities include theatres, guided tours, leisure centres and the very interactive Stafford Castle and Visiting Centre. Several large scale events and festivals take place every year, which can make empty hotel rooms harder to find, so it's well worth booking your accommodation in advance

Accommodation in Stafford

Although there some two star options, hotels in Stafford tend to be of three star standard or above. That doesn't necessarily mean they are too expensive, though, as accommodation prices throughout the Staffordshire area tend to be reasonably priced.

Options range from the usual hotel chains to independent guesthouses and hotels. You'll pay a little more for accommodation close to or in the town centre but again, even the best hotels won't break the bank.

Stafford is a friendly, medium sized town with a welcoming and intimate atmosphere. It's a fantastic base to explore the wider region, and with hotels in Stafford plentiful and affordable, there are options to suit all budgets.
