Discovering the towns and parks of Staffordshire

With plentiful places to explore all over the county of Staffordshire, you'll want to divide your time between trips into towns and adventures in the local countryside. Head to Stafford and Stoke-on-Trent to browse shops and boutiques for souvenirs, sightsee along historic streets and enjoy family dinners or evenings out at the local pub. When the sun is shining, why not spend a day hiking in parks, such as the Cannock Chase Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty? Here, you'll find walking paths, museums and plenty of scenic spots to stop and spread out a blanket for a picnic lunch.

Fun and games in Staffordshire

Staffordshire is home to a number of family-friendly amusement parks, and, if you're traveling with kids, you'll want to check them all out. You can zip down slides and splash around in a tropical oasis at Water World in Stoke-on-Trent, where an indoor setting means you don't have to wait for summer to enjoy a refreshing swim. For thrilling roller coasters, head to the Alton Towers theme park, where rides and games are available for every age. Some attractions in the area are only open seasonally, so do check the hours if you plan to visit outside the peak summer months.

Summer breaks spent in Staffordshire

Summer holidays are ideal for visiting Staffordshire, as the warmer temperatures and longer days mean more chances to spend time outdoors exploring beautiful parklands, sightseeing along city streets and heading to theme parks and pools. July and August are the warmest months, with highs often sneaking up into the 70s and evenings remaining cool and pleasant. This also tends to be the busiest time to visit, though, so be sure to select your Staffordshire vacation rental early for a summer stay. The later days of spring and early fall can provide a nice break from the crowds.

Off to the great outdoors in Staffordshire

The Staffordshire countryside is an ideal destination for all sorts of outdoor pursuits, from mountain bike rides along hilly areas to quiet strolls through grassy pastures and fields. The county is landlocked, so its natural features come in the form of moors, lakes, rivers and woodlands, with a corner of Peak District National Park nestled in the north. A Staffordshire vacation rental makes a great hub for adventures in the park, where you can hire bikes or ride on horseback to take in the views, stopping to admire native flower species and spot local birdlife along the way.
