A good place to start your trip to Stafford is in the Visitor Centre where you will find up to date information and tickets for attractions and events as well as help with accommodation and transport. It is located in the Gatehouse Theatre in Stafford town centre. Adults and children alike will enjoy spending several hours at Stafford Castle, where 26 acres of Norman buildings, woodland, herb gardens and an information centre will keep you intrigued. Enjoy a walk around the town itself, looking out for interesting architecture such as the 12th century St. Chad's Church, with its mysterious carvings. Several walking routes are available from the Visitor Centre. If you enjoy wildlife be sure to visit the British Wildlife Rescue Centre nearby with its displays of British birds and animals. If you are feeling adventurous and active pay a visit to Go Ape on beautiful Cannock Chase. Here visitors can pretend to be Tarzan whilst enjoying zip-wires and climbing activities. Not for the faint-hearted.
