EXPLORE Stafford

Don't Go Home Without

See the Staffordshire countryside from a different angle at Go Ape, just a 16-minute drive from the hotel. Go flying on zip wires, tackle rope obstacle courses high up in the treetops and go riding through woodlands on Segways. There's also a treetop adventure designed especially for children. It's a fun, unique day out for the whole family and a great way to get close to nature.

Must See

Just 13 minutes' drive from the hotel, the Stafford Castle grounds contain the country's finest examples of Norman earthworks. The 26-acre site also includes the 14th-century castle keep, a herb garden and woodlands. The Visitor Centre has an audiovisual programme covering the castle's history as well as interactive displays where you can give coin minting or brass rubbing a try.

Must Do

With its high-speed rollercoasters, scenic gardens and inventive water rides, Alton Towers Resort attracts millions of visitors each year and is just a 40-minute drive from the hotel. If you're feeling brave, ride TH13TEEN, the world’s first free-fall drop rollercoaster. Little ones can explore CBeebies Land. You can save time by buying your tickets at the hotel.
