A picturesque market town nestled in the heart of the Staffordshire countryside, Stafford is the perfect place for people wanting a quiet break or theme park-loving adrenaline junkies alike.
By far the easiest way of saving money on hotels in Stafford is to ensure that you book your room as early as possible, to prevent the prices increasing too much. This is also true if you're travelling by rail, as train fares skyrocket the closer to your departure date you book. Also, if you are planning to take your own car to Staffordshire, then it may be worth making some rough estimates as to how much you will need to spend on petrol to get there, and compare it to the cost of trains to find the cheapest way of getting to Stafford.
The biggest tourist attraction around Stafford by far is Alton Towers, Britain's most famous theme park. You can hire a car in Stafford and make the short 45-minute drive north-east and sample some of the scariest most hair-raising rides and attractions in Europe, while still having the chance to walk through the beautiful grounds of the Alton Towers estate. It certainly isn't to be missed if you take a trip to Staffordshire. Elsewhere, the Shugborough Estate in Milford, on the banks of the River Sow is a wonderful spot to take a picnic on a sunny day and take in the stunning gardens, or even have a guided tour of the vast country house.
